Balanced perspectives.

Political scientist Matt Grossmann interviews two experts about their latest research on hot button issues in the news. Research often comes from opposing perspectives, leading to balanced analysis of complicated issues. The short, biweekly episodes are great for anyone but seem geared towards academics or others interested in political science.

Needs an audio manager

I’m really glad that the Niskanen Center started a podcast, but you all really need to improve your audio quality. The last episode was indecipherable save if listening very closely. Waste of everybody’s time. Inefficient.
