Many in Washington are feeling the blues after Donald Trump took the White House and Republicans took Congress in Tuesday’s election.

But locally, the blues won some key races, including Democratic incumbent Jay Inslee for governor, Pramila Jayapal for Seattle’s U.S. Representative and Patty Murray for U.S. Senator.

We’ll be getting reaction from around the region on the election results. Listen to this special hour of coverage from KUOW's The Record.

Bill Radke speaks with Harborview psychiatrist Doug Zatzick about what ordinary Americans can do to get through the final hours of the election; including whether or not it is OK to spend the rest of election day in a kiddie pool full of Jell-O shots.

Sherry Turkle writes “face to face conversation is the most human – and humanizing – thing we do.” Yet, Turkle says in contemporary society we’re seeing a flight from conversation to our phones where we get a constant feed of connection, information and entertainment.

Bill Radke speaks with senior editor at The Urbanist, Doug Trumm, about his idea to rip out I-5 from downtown Seattle.

Robert Satiacum promised to uphold the will of the people. He is a Washington state elector. He agreed to cast his electoral vote based on who wins. Now he says he might not cast that vote for Hillary Clinton no matter who wins. 

Also, this hour you have to wait to find out who will be your president. How will you spend that time? What's the wisest way to spend that time? And we're not all elections today. We will make case for why we should tear down I-5 in downtown Seattle.

Bill Radke talks with Robin DiAngelo about how listeners reacted to our earlier conversation about how white people experience race.

The polls show Clinton leading Trump. Is there any reason to distrust those polls? Also, why do Canadians care so much about our election? And we've talked about whiteness on this show. Now KUOW listeners talk back about what they think of racism and being white.
