JOE BIDEN faces multiple crises after four years that often resembled a denial-of-service attack on American governance. How will the new administration reboot Washington?

Washington residents reflect on an unusual inauguration, we look back to previous presidencies birthed in crises, and speak to Kathryn Dunn Tenpas of the Brookings Institution about repairing the machinery of government.

John Prideaux, our US editor, hosts with New York bureau chief Charlotte Howard, and Jon Fasman, US digital editor. Runtime: 38 min
