Pressing Pause: Our Body Politic is on hiatus.     |     Click here to learn more.    

This week, we’re re-airing some of Our Body Politic’s most noteworthy and illuminating political interviews from the past two years. In preparation of the 2022 Midterms, we’re looking at how some of the most pressing political issues continue to shape our nation by revisiting conversations with key public officials like New York Attorney General Letitia “Tish” James, who shared insights on holding Jan 6 insurrectionists accountable, scholar Geraldo Cadava, who broke down the history of Hispanic Republicans, and Bertica Cabrera Morris, a longstanding Republican organizer and businesswoman. We also hear from U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawai’i who shared how being the only immigrant in the U.S. Senate shapes her politics, and Wes Moore, the current Democratic nominee for governor of Maryland, who shared how his ancestors’ experience with white supremacists and his service in the U.S. military inform and inspire his political career.
