Creativity, Energy, and Experimentation

In this episode of the P.S. You're Interesting podcast, Jeff Jenkins and Benjamin Newman, Associate Professor of Public Policy and Political Science at the UC Riverside, discuss creativity and experimentation in political science. As a young scholar, Ben was interested in figuring out why people have the opinions they have, why they vote the way they do. To answer these questions, and integrate the questions he has about the people and circumstances surrounding him, Ben is developing a set of research questions and experiments to explore his world.

What worries does Ben have about the state of facts and science in the political realm?
