It’s a historic day in American politics. Much like the general election, the Georgia Senate runoffs have been high stakes nail biters, with Senate control and a lot of Joe Biden’s agenda hanging in the balance.

Note: this episode was recorded before news broke that Trump supporters breached the U.S. Capitol building and forced a lockdown.
