    ANOTHER WAY

    Another Way is a weekly podcast about how we can get reforming and improving our democracy front and center in the upcoming election. This season, Larry Lessig and the Equal Citizens team will be talking to presidential candidates, authors, activists, and more to bring you in-depth information about the most important issues in our democracy, and to let you know who can finally make change happen. The goal is to get to POTUS1—that is, to have a presidential candidate who makes ending legal corruption and strengthening our democracy the first priority of any administration.

    About Another Way Stories

    Can we make ending corruption and strengthening democracy the number one priority in 2020? Can we get to POTUS1?

    That’s the challenge that has inspired this podcast by Equal Citizens founder Lawrence Lessig. In these first two seasons on Another Way, Larry and the Equal Citizens team bring you weekly conversations about what’s wrong with our democracy, how to fix it, and how to get candidates for President talking about those issues so that we can make this issue number one in the campaign. HR1 was a first step. Now we need POTUS1.

    These are the conversation that the politicians aren’t giving us on their own. That’s precisely why we citizens must bring this issue to them. Please join us.
