On today’s podcast we’re talking about a host of converging issues, movements and challenges. We’ll start with the 2020 campaign. According to the latest numbers Trump is losing substantial ground with a multitude of voter groups. He’s made the decision to run on ‘law and order’ but its unclear if this will be an effective strategy.
Additionally we’ll talk about the convergence of protests, police reform and COVID19 and whether or not we can expect to see permanent change in our country as a result.
