From racially motivated killings in Kentucky, to pipe bombs mailed to prominent officials, to murders in a Pittsburgh synagogue, the nation endured a particularly trying week.

But these are not normal times. Five days out from the hugely consequential midterm elections, Jeh Johnson, former secretary of homeland security under former President Barack Obama, joined the pod to break down the past week of hate, the ongoing threats to our election infrastructure, and the imperative of voting in the face of it all.
