Midterm Mayhem, Recuse Me, Iran from America
It’s midterm Tuesday, people! Did you know polling places used to have alcohol onsite? And that future elections could be controlled by fewer and fewer people? V’s talking everything voting — past, present, and future. They’ll also turn an eye to the Supreme Court, which was down one justice in a recent case. Then, V is joined by Negin Farsad, comedian and host of the podcast Fake the Nation. With lineage and firsthand experience in Iran, Negin shares what it’s really like under an authoritarian government and offers ways we can help those fighting against it.
