About the Show


Hosts: Neal Conan and Heather Cox Richardson

The presidency of Donald Trump has sparked a national conversation in America. Is our democracy at risk? “The Democracy Test” will give a broad and diverse national platform to this work. Over the course of six episodes, we’ll examine the fault lines of American democracy. Our guests will bring the kind of expertise needed to understand what is truly unique in this moment of our nation’s history, what brought us here, and what it would take to emerge with an even stronger understanding of what democracy means in America and how we can move toward an even stronger expression of its ideals.
