In 15 minutes, you’ll get beyond punditry to data-driven understanding.

Hear about their new discoveries and get the broader context that’s lost in the daily news shuffle. Topics covered include the influence of cable news, the gender gap in voting, and why our national discussion of climate change is so polarized.
