Klein and Latzer engage in an earnest and honest discussion of the facts on the ground, including the history of brutal incarceration in America, the progressive policies and their effects, real historical racism in US prison systems, current trends that are misinterpreted as arising from racism, crime spikes throughout US history, and reasonable responses to highly contentious issues of our political and societal stances on incarceration.

The Real Clear podcast covers a wide range of topics, from the latest election results to policy debates, to exploring the impact of current events on the political landscape.
