Tune in to WRVO’s Campbell Conversations Sunday at 6 pm to listen as Maxwell Professor Grant Reeher interviews Jon Trickett
How did avowed socialist Jeremy Corbyn recently win election as Labour Leader in Britain, on an anti-war, pro-refugee platform? Are there lessons from that election which might apply to the U.S., and to the presidential run of Bernie Sanders? Are these rumblings of potential, more far-reaching political revolutions in the West? This week on the Campbell Conversations host Grant Reeher explores those questions with Jon Trickett, the first Member of Parliament to nominate Corbyn for Leader, and now one of his closest advisors.
Miss the live broadcast? The interview will be available as a podcast and download on the Campbell Conversations page after Sunday.
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.
