Deepak Puri, Co-Founder and CEO, of The Democracy Labs, is a fan of using Homer Simpson and other cultural icons to reach a broader audience of voters. Deploying humor rather than outrage seems to be a reliable way to get voters to listen and consider another point of view. Also on Deepak's agenda are gun safety and gun violence, protecting voting rights, gerrymandering, and using data visualization to educate and engage voters on geographically relevant issues.

We talk about:

  • How humor cuts across the political spectrum
  • Breaking through the political commentary and negative ads using humor
  • Using humor to sugar-coat discussions about challenging topics
  • Mockery and satire
  • Key players in the gun ecosystem and following the money to understand the big picture of criminal gun violence
