The two discussed voter suppression and voter turnout and how high the stakes are for this year’s United States election slated to conclude this November 3. Favreau believes this year’s election is the last chance for Americans to change what is happening in their country now. “Voting won’t elect a savior, it won’t solve all our problems,” he shared, and added that voting will give them “a chance to do something about climate change, systematic racism, healthcare, and education.”
