Stephen Erickson joins host T.J. O'Hara on this week's podcast to discuss his latest book, "What Would Madison Do? The Political Journey Progressives and Conservatives Must Make Together."
The two delve into key issues raised in the book, the parallels between the challenges Madison faced and those in the present political climate, as well as Erickson's experience in the political realm and the insight he provides into a partisan system.
