Good episode? Give it some love!
Aaron lives in California, and Trishul lives in Pennsylvania, and it feels like Trishul's vote for the President is worth more than Aaron's. In this episode, they discuss the American voting system and how it influences and incentivizes certain behaviors over others. They consider alternative voting structures used around the world and examine past elections to understand how they may have played out with a different system in place. The purpose of a voting system is to provide the most accurate representation of what the electorate wants. But is it even possible to implement something better given all the conflicts of interest involved?
