Political Circus: Impeachment special

THU // OCT 10
We interrupt our regularly scheduled Political Circus programming to bring you all* of the research there is and ever has been to help us all better understand the possible implications and consequences of the recent impeachment news (if any). Will this go down in history as a major turning point for the administration or even our country? Or will we forget about it all by next week when something else insane happens? Only time, and this show, can tell.**
* a great deal of
** by “tell” in the context of this show, we mean “provide several frameworks for possibly making sense of”. In the context of time, we mean it as is.

Doors 6:30 PM, show 7:00 PM.
Tickets $12 in advance, $15 at the door.
This event is mixed seated and standing room. Seats are first-come, first-served.
REFUND POLICY: Tickets may be refunded up to 24 hours before the event. Within 24 hours we may take exchanges for other events at our discretion. No refunds after the event.

About the show:

This is a series about the decades (sometimes centuries) of political research that can help us understand what our political structures are actually doing, why, and how (and whether) to change them. We examine the research and discoveries behind questions like: What does "majority rule" even mean and what are the consequences of it? Are we actually getting more polarized? Why, despite the historical records in the midterm election, do so many candidates and leaders still look the same?
