Each podcast episode of Civics 101 gives listeners a non-partisan, topical “refresher course on how American democracy was designed and how it is practiced in the real world.”

Episode 13: “From Jimmy Stewart’s unyielding speech in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington to today’s threats of using the nuclear option for approving Supreme Court nominees, the term “filibuster” gets thrown around a lot, but what is it? What are the rules governing this sanctioned form of unruliness? And is it effective?”
