What happens to a democracy when trust in government erodes? That's the question discussed in the sixth and final episode of "The Democracy Test," a new podcast series hosted by longtime NPR journalist Neal Conan. We'll talk to the former Talk of the Nation host about the state of American democratic institutions in the Trump era. We'll also hear about his involvement with "Between War and Here," a theatrical collaboration between journalists and musicians honoring U.S. military veterans wounded in war.
