“The Right Side of History” is a podcast dedicated to exploring current events through a historical lens and busting left-wing myths about figures and events of America’s past.

On the inaugural episode, hosts Jarrett Stepman, a contributor to The Daily Signal, and Fred Lucas, The Daily Signal’s White House correspondent, discuss the recent calls to abolish the Electoral College and throw presidential elections to a national popular vote.

They are joined by Heritage Foundation senior legal fellow [and ACRU Policy Board member] Hans Von Spakovsky, who explains why the Founders created our electoral system and how the 2016 election actually shows that it works.
