How America can avoid a new civil war

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a couple of developments in the quest for accountability for the MAGA coup attempt.

Then we are joined by Marquette University political scientist Julia Azari to talk about the unique challenges Joe Biden has faced in the first year of his presidency, and the reasons why the conventional wisdom about the upcoming midterms could prove to be wrong. 

 
Finally, Lee Drutman, a lecturer at Johns Hopkins and fellow at New America, explains why America's system of governance is poorly equipped to support a healthy, multiethnic democracy and argues that there is a way out of our current levels of tribal conflict.
