Imagine a world in which a bombastic businessman has been named the President Elect of the United States. That was easy, wasn’t it? Now imagine that the incumbent Republican president is secretly working to prevent him from taking office, and that the votes of the electors are at the heart of his schemes. Listeners seeking complete escapism are unlikely to find it in this sleek melodrama from Wondery, which at times skates too close to reality for comfort. But if you’re in search of a topical, high-quality drama series, here it is. Each episode is around 15 minutes long, with the series comprising 13 instalments to date.
