Emily, who is leading a book club at Rose State College, had the opportunity to interview Dr. Steven Levitsky, co-author of "How Democracies Die" - the book Emily selected for this semester. In the interview, Dr. Levitsky explains some of the threats he sees to American Democracy and what can be done to protect against those threats.

James and Emily also discuss the results from the South Carolina presidential primary elections and speculate on the possibility of an independent or third party candidacy by Nikki Haley or another anti-Trump Republican.

Dr. Steven Levitsky is the David Rockefeller Professor of Latin American Studies and Professor of Government at Harvard University. You can find out more about him here:
