New Redistricting Ideas, and Why They Matter Every ten years, a few state leaders get together behind closed doors to draw a new map that has considerable influence over which of their elected colleagues will have to fight to keep their jobs. It's called redistricting, and lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are pushing proposals to throw open those closed doors. Monday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop for a conversation about the Republican and Democratic ideas, the suprisingly fertile middle ground between them, and why this all matters for democracy.
