    On this emergency episode, Adam Eichen speaks with Equal Citizens Founder Lawrence Lessig about the disturbing insurrection attempt at the US Capitol this week. The two attempt to unpack how we got to this bleak moment in history and who is to blame (Hint: Donald Trump, Josh Hawley, and Ted Cruz).
