When Aaron Sorkin’s “The West Wing” first aired from 1999-2006, it was revolutionary, must-watch television. Throughout its run, the show confronted many of the same dilemmas we still face, including the left-right divide, impeachment of a president, creative solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, racism and hate crimes. Join superfan Liam Getreu as we dive into the archives and pick up The West Wing’s lessons for our current political world.
