From Judd Legum’s About section at Popular.info:
Popular Information is written by me, Judd Legum. I spent a decade following politics obsessively as the founder and editor of ThinkProgress. According to Wikipedia, I’ve “drawn notice for reporting and commentary on a range of political topics.”
I also have experience working on a presidential campaign. In 2008, I was Hillary Clinton’s Research Director, which means I was in charge of researching her and her opponents. I was part of a small team that helped Clinton prepare for all 25 Democratic primary debates. I also got an inside look at all the components of a major political campaign, including the press operation, polling, field and ads.
In 2010, I ran for State Delegate in Maryland. I knocked on 10,000 doors, put up yard signs, showed up at homeowners’ association meetings and sent out direct mail. I won the Democratic nomination. Then I lost in the general election. It was gutting but I’m glad I tried it.
I’m putting my experience in politics to work to deliver a newsletter that is worth your time and attention.
43 mins Dr BRIAN ROSENWALD is the author of Talk Radio’s America: How an Industry Took Over a Political Party That Took Over the United States, editor of the Washington Post blog Made by History, and scholar-in-residence at the University of Pennsylvania.
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.
