A timely one-hour special, hosted by NPR's Scott Simon, that tells stories of American democracy at the local level. We listen in as people wrestle with issues alongside -- and in opposition to -- their neighbors. Segments from Upstate New York, North Carolina, Texas, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Alaska.

From John Biewen and the Center for Documentary Studies.

Tune in Tuesday July 3rd at 1pm.
