Election 101

CNN Audio and iHeartRadio have announced "Election 101," a new co-produced podcast that demystifies the American political system while offering a unique perspective on the inner workings of the electoral process. Hosted by CNN correspondent Kristen Holmes, the program answers questions that are weighing heavy on the minds of Americans as the unprecedented Presidential election approaches.

Each episode of this 10-part series serves as an explainer for listeners who may be overwhelmed by our current political environment, while offering a "back-to-basics" narrative that explains the stakes and consequences of long-standing institutions and how they play into American elections, including: the two-party system, mail-in voting, voter security, gerrymandering, the Electoral College, political conventions and campaign finance.

"Election 101" also explores other crucial issues that will inform the 2020 election season, including Medicare for All, climate change, student debt, gun control, immigration, income inequality, trade deals and the Supreme Court.

The first episode is now available across CNN Audio and iHeartRadio digital platforms, on mobile devices via the CNN and iHeartRadio apps. New episodes will be released every Wednesday and are distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network.
