“Is Congress Broken?” — that is the topic of this episode. My guest is https://www.cmc.edu/academic/faculty/profile/john-pitney-jr (Dr. Jack Pitney), the coeditor of the book, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N9VMONC/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8andbtkr=1 (Is Congress Broken? The Virtues and Defects of Partisanship and Gridlock). Jack is the Roy P. Crocker Professor of Politics at Claremont McKenna College, where he teaches American politics and government.

This book, which was coedited by William Connelley and Gary Schmitt, is a marvelous collection of essays written by top scholars. All of the chapters, I should note, are accessible to the lay reader. One need not be a political scientist or academic to enjoy this book, and come away with a greater understanding of the First Branch.
