Episode 5 (DNC-American Experiments): How civic tech aims to form a more perfect union
In a sour election year, what does hope sound like? Hear it percolating in this episode taped at the American Experiments event in Philadelphia on the Democratic National Convention's first day. Civic tech and election reform leaders gathered to compare ideas for improving our politics, while showing off apps and handing out swag to a steady stream of curious voters. Six took part in a lightning pitch contest (what's your hot idea for fixing democracy by 2024?) before a lively crowd. You'll hear from one of the winners, Democracy Works, and one of the judges, Adam Ambrogi of the Democracy Fund. Listen to Episode 5 on Soundcloud. Subscribe via RSS feed or iTunes.
