At the time of this podcast recording, we're less than two weeks from an important election. Nationally, Democrats are trying to take back the congressional majority--and Pennsylvania is a huge part of that effort.

This week, WITF and Keystone Crossroads reporter Emily Previti joins us to explain how voter registration is shaking out in the commonwealth--and to assess whether this is, in fact, an exceptional year for the left. WHYY's Jim Saksa will also drop in to talk about why any inroads Democrats make in Congress probably won't extend to state House and Senate races.

Plus, PA Post's Ed Mahon will help answer a bunch of listener questions. If you have a question of your own, shoot us an email at podcast@papost.org.
