The United States of Anxiety
The United States of Anxiety: The United States of Anxiety is a show about the unfinished business of our history and its grip on our future. Many of the political and social arguments we’re having now started in the aftermath of the Civil War, when Americans set out to do something no one had tried before: build the world’s first multiracial democracy. The podcast gives voters the context to understand what’s at stake in this election. WNYC Studios is a listener-supported producer of other great podcasts including Radiolab, Death, Sex & Money, and On the Media.

It’s the tone of his voice, the cadence that makes these difficult conversations not only tolerable, but enjoyed. Listened to every episode and Caught and the Labor episodes are heart wrenching and amazing.

How disappointing hearing your callers. They don’t like trump but are going to be voting for them anyway. Have they been watching and hearing trump turn our country into a illiberal, authoritarian state. Have they not felt vulnerable during the pandemic with his horrible response. Heavy sigh.
