Host Reed Galen is joined by multi-Emmy winning filmmaker, Melissa Jo Peltier to discuss her award-winning documentary, The Game Is Up: Disillusioned Trump Voters Tell Their Stories, which studies how hard-core Trump voters turned away from the MAGA cult in 2020. They talk about why it was important to make the film, the transformations experienced by the characters who were profiled, and how those who went against Trump/Trumpism were received by their communities post-rejection. Plus, why do so many Republican politicians continue to support MAGA’s authoritarian movement even though history tells us exactly how it will end?
