The American Democracy Minute Radio Report 

The American Democracy Minute is a 90-second daily radio report & podcast covering voting rights, money in politics, redistricting and other critical democracy issues in Washington and in states around the country. Keep up to date on YOUR democracy in 90 seconds! We're new to PRX but have produced over 200 episodes on other networks.

Although the episodes are only 90-seconds, after a fact-filled report, listeners are encouraged to visit http://www.AmericanDemocracyMinute.org for additional information, resources, and ways to get involved at a local or national level in that issue. ADM, national since April 2022, is the successor to the Open Democracy Minute, which appeared on NH stations from January 2019 - March 2022. Visit https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/americandemocracyminute to hear our 200+ past reports.

ADM is hosted and produced by Brian Beihl, former deputy director of Open Democracy and Open Democracy Action, a NH-based pro-voter nonprofit. Prior, Brian was station manager of WNHN in Concord, NH, a magazine editor, and attended the School of Journalism at Michigan State University.
