85: Michael Waldman 

With Trump back in the news and Derek Chauvin recently convicted, James and Al bring on the President of NYU’s Brennan Center for Justice Michael Waldman for his take.  Can we expect Trump to finally land in legal trouble, and what’s the best way for the Democrats to remove the many obstacles he placed in the way of our democracy?  Will they also be able to make progress on criminal justice reform or is more persuasion needed for the country to start moving forward?

76: Amanda Carpenter 

Is the GOP on the short bumpy road to irrelevance?  James and Al bring on strategist, author, and Bulwark contributor Amanda Carpenter-- formerly a Ted Cruz staffer-- to find out why the Republican Party can’t escape Trump, and what things might look like if they do.  If they can’t, Democrats can press a generational advantage, but it might not matter if they can’t get their act together!
