​​​​​​​The Aftermath is a podcast focused on the government’s response to the Jan. 6 Capitol attack and the search for accountability in the years since. Each episode looked at a different aspect of the government’s response. The season finale—entitled Going Dark—was released June 16 and delves into the behind the scenes legal battles the House Select Committee faced in their investigation into who was culpable for the January 6 attack. 

On Tuesday, June 20 at 3pm ET, Lawfare Editor-in-Chief Benjamin Wittes, Lawfare Executive Editor Natalie Orpett, Lawfare Associate Editor Katherine Pompilio, and Goat Rodeo's Ian Enright will join a Lawfare Live to discuss the entire season, why The Aftermath was created, the behind the scenes work that went into producing each episode, and more.
