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 37: “The United States is described as a republic, a federation, and a constitutional democracy. So, what is it? Are those terms interchangeable? And, while we’re at it, what’s the difference between totalitarianism, despotism, and dictatorship?” Tune in for a brief primer on different forms of government.
