    A look back at Super Tuesday: Harvard Kennedy School students discuss the 2020 primaries

    A look back at Super Tuesday: Harvard Kennedy School students discuss the 2020 primaries

    Before all the changes regarding the coronavirus pandemic, Super Tuesday reset the Democratic Primary. Fifteen states hold their primaries on this date, and the results always set the tone of the race moving forward. Listening to this episode now will have a different flavor because of all the disruptions coronavirus has caused in our everyday lives. Nonetheless, these conversations among students tell a story about the primary that is still continuing in the background. Tune in to listen as Phoenix, Lucy and Nagela (all members of the podcast team) discuss with other Kennedy School students what Super Tuesday looked like in individual states, perspectives on the different candidates, what’s at stake in the 2020 elections, and ways to move forward from here.

    S3E3: - Why We Trek

    S3E3: - Why We Trek

    Every year dozens of students organise ‘treks’ to their home towns and countries. Entirely voluntary and student led, they plan activities to to initiate their fellow students in the culture, politics and history of the place. Samer Hjouj leads the Palestine trek for the Harvard Kennedy School and Phoenix McLaughlin just led a trek to Maine.

    What motivates them to put in this hard work over and above their course load? How do they design the itinerary and what do they prioritise? What dilemmas do they face and how do they navigate it? What do they want the students to take away from this experience?

    Prachi Naik from the KSR Podcast team, also a participant in the Palestine trek, talks to them about all this and more.
