Today we talk about everyone's favorite topic... gerrymandering! Okay, maybe it sounds a bit more like a guy you knew back in high school than a political maneuver - so we're going to tell you how it works. Gerrymandering is a process where one (or multiple) political party adjusts the boundaries of a congressional district to better suit their party. Sounds illegal, doesn't it? In this episode we're going to tell you... where gerrymandering got its name, how it can sometimes actually be a good thing, if the Supreme Court has ever issued an opinion on it, and much more! ________________________ Ready for your holiday party?
