On January 6, 2020, rioters entered the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to overthrow the government and thwart the certification of the Electoral College results. We’ve launched into 2021 with words straight out of the history books—insurrection, sedition, coup, and treason. Steph and I have an honest conversation about how this event affected us. What is our understanding of what led to this? Was it predictable, surprising, or both? Whether you are still trying to process how you feel about what happened on January 6 or you’ve already moved on, I hope you find this conversation helpful.
