Interview with Maxwell Professor Mark Monmonier on the history of our local snowfall, Sunday at 6 p.m. on The Campbell Conversations


Tune into WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Professor Mark Monmonier.

You’d think that Global Warming would make for less snow, but in this episode of the Campbell Conversations we learn why it might produce more snow, at least in Central New York. Host Grant Reeher talks with Mark Monmonier about his latest book–Lake Effect: Tales of Large Lakes, Arctic Winds, and Recurrent Snows. Find out what fascinated the Syracuse University Geography professor so much about the history of our local snowfalls that he wrote an entire book about the phenomenon.

Listen in to the last edition of Campbell Conversations where Grant Reeher talks with Yale political scientist Eleanor Powell, an expert on money and Congress.  What effects do campaign contributions and independent expenditures really have on the way that Congress works?   Powell describes the complicated web of money’s influence, and considers what could realistically be done to change the system.


The Campbell Conversations

Sundays at 6:00 p.m. with Grant Reeher

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.

Support for the The Campbell Conversations series on WRVO is provided by The Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship.
