This week I had North Carolina State Senator Jeff Jackson in the studio and it was a lights-out episode! It’s easy to get discouraged in the current political climate, but Senator Jackson’s optimism and positive vision for the future are infectious. In a little over an hour, we covered the issues you care about and hammered out a plan to save the world! 

Key moments from this episode:

5:04  How gerrymandering came to be a key issue for him
8:08  On ending gerrymandering via constitutional amendment
9:24 — Bringing accountability to the process by lowering the barrier between the voters and the politicians
16:06 — Choosing to approach every interaction with constituents as a learning experience
23:56 — Battling disinformation
30:10 — The unpredictable rise of Donald Trump
