Episode description

Episode 10 - Our swan song for IL Informed Season 1. After all this talk about how the system works, we dive into how to make the system accountable. What does accountability actually mean? What does it look like? Accountable to whom?  And how do we as individuals navigate through all the confusing nonsense to actually make the change in government we want to see?
