On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
C-SPAN, Twitter, Facebook, and (yes) the Daily Show give American voters a unique, near real-time view of Congress. These tools have allowed reporters, journalists and satirists to hold their elected leaders accountable in new ways. But the portrait is often incomplete, missing the strategy, elbow twisting and every day constituent service that goes into legislating. Kojo kicks off a week of special broadcasts from Capitol Hill by talking with C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb and Roll Call Editor-in-Chief Christina Bellantoni about the difference between Congress as it is, and Congress as we imagine it.
