Host Coy Barefoot talks with Brian Cannon, the Executive Director of OneVirginia2021, about a new documentary that explores one of the most insidious and longest-lasting forms of political corruption in America: gerrymandering. Elected politicians continue to handpick their own voters. Brian is leading an effort in Virginia to finally put an end to this complete violation of the very principle of democratic government. .
