Animocracy

How We Got a Space Force

Animocracy

Lots of talk about the military after this week’s events, but what about Trump’s newly-minted, (but not actually that new at all), intergalactic branch? As the program develops, we grant everyone the hope that the Space Force be with you.

Spygate Deflated

Animocracy

The DOJ Inspector General report didn't exactly go as Trump had planned. What the president thought would be "worse than Watergate" turned out to be a whole lotta nothing. See if Bill Barr can turn lemons into full-blown conspiracies in this week's Animocracy.

The Victory Lab

In Defense of the Iowa Caucuses

Unrepresentative. Unfair. Outdated. These are just some of the words pundits, politicians, and party officials have used to describe the Iowa caucuses. Sasha Issenberg — political journalist and author — disagrees. In fact, he's willing to go out on a limb to defend the caucuses unlike anyone else. Hear his case in the first episode of The Victory Lab, Recount's new video essay series. Oh, and wondering what the hell the Iowa caucuses are or how they work? Don't worry, Issenberg explains the process in terms everyone can understand — with M&Ms.
