Do We Have A Hearing Problem?
Whatever you call what happened at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, a rally — a protest — a riot — or an insurrection, the congressional investigation and hearings are forging new territory.
On this episode of Us & Them, we look at who’s watching the hearings, who’s not and why. What some call a clarifying moment in our nation’s experiment in democracy is surprisingly forgettable to others.
Host Trey Kay listens to a range of opinions about what that day meant and finds a new layer of uncomfortable truths behind how people feel. Kay uses the Us & Them approach to listen to others and finds, to his surprise, the outcome is far from what he imagined.
This episode of Us & Them is presented with support from the West Virginia Humanities Council, the Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation and the CRC Foundation.
