In Washington, the story often ends when Congress passes a law. For The Impact, that’s where the story begins. Each season, Sarah Kliff investigates the way policy shapes people’s lives. This season, she’s crisscrossing the country to explore how cities and states are trying to solve our country’s biggest problems. Produced by Vox and the Vox Media Podcast Network.

"Sarah Kliff is so talented. The seasons of The Impact are short, but the quality of each episode is amazing. You can tell that a lot of research goes into each one. I devoured season 2 and I'm already waiting for season 3. Highly recommended."
