Gephardt Institute podcast: the legacy of the insurrection on the US Capitol Building

The American Democracy Lab Podcast, hosted by Associate Professor Alan Lambert and presented by the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement, returns for season two by revisiting the insurrection at the US Capitol Building on the one-year anniversary of the event through a special two-part conversation.  


Our guests, the Honorable Richard Gephardt (D-MO) and Zach Wamp (R-Tenn) reflect on January 6, 2021, recounting where they were when they first heard about the attack and their efforts as members of bipartisan groups focused on election integrity. In addition, they identify potential reforms that could increase trust in the system and they offer their advice to current members of Congress on how to bridge the widening gap between Republicans and Democrats to restore faith in our democracy.
