Dr. Kirby Goidel and Dr. Todd Kent from the Texas A&M Department of Political Science use their years of teaching, research and campaign experience to show you what’s actually happening in politics. No partisan politics here, just a navigation of political data, media, money, behavior and more so you can be more informed the next time you vote. Listen to recent episodes now!

Episode #005 – The World Has Changed and So Has Our Economy

The economy is confusing, can we agree? But if it makes you feel any better, our political science experts are back to discuss why they are JUST AS CONFUSED! While Todd is away with his group of Aggies studying abroad, Kirby invites a special guest into the studio: Bill Clark, a Texas A&M professor specializing in political economic theory. Kirby and Bill begin their discussion with this week’s political hot topic – former president Donald Trump’s felony conviction. After a few quick takes, the two hosts take a deep dive into the role of the Federal Reserve, the current state of the U.S. economy and how much influence either presidential candidate will actually have on the future of it.
