We’re taking a break at “OPB Politics Now” to recover from the 2019 Oregon Legislature and prepare for the 2020 campaign cycle.

While we’re off, here’s a special look at season 2 of “Bundyville,” a podcast from OPB and Longreads that chronicles the rise of the so-called patriot movement and how extreme rhetoric is going mainstream. In this episode, freelance journalist Leah Sottile looks at Washington Rep. Matt Shea and his push for a 51st state — a place governed by biblical law and made up of white people.
