599: Seriously?

Oct 21, 2016
Watching lies become the truth in this year's election. And a few people who try to bridge the gap between the way the two sides see the facts.
Every day until Election Day, we'll have a new Chris Ware & John Kuramoto animation. See them all.

Watch the video of Leslie Odom, Jr. singing "Seriously," written by Sara Bareilles.

The internet version of this episode contains curse words. If you prefer, here is a bleeped version.
  • In this election year we look at the story of one small ballot initiative, in one state. We heard this referendum would gut Georgia's Judicial Qualifications Commission (JQC), an independent organization that investigates ethics complaints about judges. Years ago, the JQC investigated a judge we did a whole episode about, Amanda Williams, and she resigned from the bench. We wondered why in the world someone would want to tamper with an agency that seemed to be doing a good job at a low cost. Producer David Kestenbaum went to Georgia to figure out what was going on.
