I am a scholar in residence at the Partnership for Effective Public Administration and Leadership Ethics at the University of Pennsylvania, an instructor at Penn, and author of Talk Radio’s America: How an Industry Took Over a Political Party That Took Over the United States. I serve as the Editor-In-Chief of Made By History, a Washington Post history section, and as a political analyst for NBC10 Philadelphia. Previously, I did the research for the Slate podcast Whistlestop.
I work at the intersection of 4 disciplines— history, political science, media studies, and communications. My scholarly interests include Congress, the media, public policy, and the Supreme Court. I also have significant interests in the substance of public policy and in helping scholars to reach a wider audience with their work. I am a passionate and devoted teacher with substantial teaching experience across multiple disciplines. I love to experiment in the classroom with innovative methods and course elements.
Please consider a paid subscription to this daily podcast. Everyday I will interview expert guests,usually 2 or more on a wide range of issues. I will continue to be transparent about my life, issues and vulnerabilities in hopes we can relate, connect and grow together.
