As finalists in a podcast competition worth 20 thousand dollars, Khadim Diop and his creative partner, Xisko Monroe, create an audio ethnography about the 2020 presidential election. Working exclusively in Times Square from sunrise November 3, 2020, to sunrise November 4, 2020, they ask all interviewees three questions: Where were you the last election? What are the most important issues in this election? Do you think this will be the last election? Conflict arises between the podcasters when Xisko’s sister challenges Khadim’s personal political choices and breaks his heart. Shot in one day in Times Square NYC, “The Last Election and Other Love Stories” is both fiction and documentary.
