The Aftermath - Ep 1: Day Zero, Ground Zero
The Aftermath is not a podcast about the insurrection itself, or about how we got there. It’s a podcast about what happened next – how our democracy is attempting to right itself in the face of an existential threat. Who is being criminally prosecuted, and who isn’t. How is Congress taking action—and what is it ignoring. And how are our institutions telling the story—and who gets to tell it.
To set the scene for this project we are going to spend one episode—this one—on the events of the day itself. How what happened on January 6 revealed the difficult questions that people have spent the last year trying to answer.
This is Episode 1: Day Zero, Ground Zero.
