About this Episode

Political consultant and podcaster Luke Thompson joins Emmet to talk through the problem of political ossification. They talk through realignment theory, conceptions of political time, how party coalitions have changed over time, the shifting nature of American political institutions, and, of course, why nothing feels possible.
