American politics has changed a lot in the twenty years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks that defined a generation of American life. In this installment of the Genesis Brand Politics podcast, Jennifer Merolla, a Professor of Political Science at UC Riverside, and Hannah Hartig, a research associate at Pew Research Center reflect on the political climate in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 and whether a similar American consensus is possible in the current political environment. Also, CalMatters Politics reporter Laurel Rosenhall and political analyst Paul Mitchell join in the second segment to discuss the status of the California gubernatorial recall election.
