Jillian Youngblood, Executive Director of Civic Genius, joins Hillari to discuss a series of focus groups that brought Americans together to discuss Infrastructure — what it means, what they want, how much to spend, how to pay, and everything in between. Along the way, Hillari and Jillian talk about how people actually think about policy, the importance of tough conversations, and how to build common ground when you have them.
