Coming Soon: The Impact, Season 2
In Washington, the story often ends when Congress passes a law. For us, that’s where the story begins. We follow the choices that legislators, leaders, and researchers make out into the real world where they have human consequences — both positive and negative, expected and unexpected.
Our second season starts Friday, November 2nd, with stories about America’s most interesting policy experiments. In the meantime, listen back to our first season about health care, and email us with thoughts and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
