About this Episode

Wisconsin Watch presents a recording of our Nov. 12, 2020 webinar — part of the 'Speakeasy: Casual conversations, serious issues' series.

Wisconsin Watch reporters and guest panelist Jennifer Epps-Addison hosted a spirited discussion breaking down what happened in Wisconsin during the 2020 presidential election, including how voter turnout compared to the 2016 presidential election and the effect of rampant misinformation about voter fraud on social media.

Wisconsin Watch Managing Editor Dee J. Hall was joined by Jennifer Epps-Addison, president and co-executive director of The Center for Popular Democracy, Wisconsin Watch reporter Vanessa Swales, and Wisconsin Watch/Vote Beat reporters Nora Eckert and Anya van Wagtendonk.
