37 - What's Wrong With Partisan Gerrymandering? Pt. 1
Jul 26, 2019
The Badlands

In this episode, we begin our discussion of partisan gerrymandering: what is it? How, exactly, does it happen, and why? What are the harms of it, and if it’s unfair, why is it unfair? Answering these questions forces us to grapple with the very goods that a representational democracy is meant to secure.
