Tune into WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Eleanor Powell.
What effects do campaign contributions and independent expenditures really have on the way that Congress works? On this episode of the Campbell Conversations, Grant Reeher talks with Yale political scientist Eleanor Powell, an expert on money and Congress. Powell describes the complicated web of money’s influence, and considers what could realistically be done to change the system.
Listen in to the last edition of Campbell Conversations where humorist Larry Wilmore explains why he’d rather African-Americans got casinos instead of the celebration—which is also the title of his recent book. The writer and performer also discusses his experiences as the “senior black correspondent” for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
Every week Grant Reeher, Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University, leads a conversation with a notable guest. Guests include people from central New York – writers, politicians, activists, public officials, and business professionals whose work affects the public life of the community – as well as nationally-prominent figures visiting the region to talk about their work.
The Campbell Conversations are longer interviews which encourage the character of the interviewee to be exposed. This allows you to learn more about the person, how they got to where they are, and where they plan to go. Grant attempts to go beyond the usual press conference questions and sound bites, which usually accompany a discussion about his guests.
Podcasts of the show are available via iTunes.
