Election protections 24 MIN, 39 SEC

The 2018 midterm elections will decide which party controls the Senate and Congress. Will the electorate have faith in the results? Many believe the voting is rigged or that Russia is skewing the outcome. Are there protections in place to reassure voters?  Should politicians and the media take action to rebuild trust in the integrity of the voting system?

Are we suffering from Truth Decay? 25 MIN, 18 SEC

It’s not just “fake news” it’s “truth decay:” increasing disagreement about what’s real and a blurring of facts and opinion. Respected sources of information don’t have credibility any more. Our leaders can’t agree on the problem, let alone a solution. How do we educate and train people to distinguish fact from fiction and become better citizens?
