In the midst of the closely watched 2016 presidential election cycle comes Centre Point, an eight-part podcast series in which Centre College faculty discuss the pertinent issues. Listeners will not only gain a better understanding of political complexities, but they’ll also get insight into the fascinating conversations that take place in classrooms at Centre every day.

In this third episode of Centre Point, host Bill Goodman talks with Centre faculty members Lori Hartmann-Mahmud (above, right), Frank B. and Virginia B. Hower Professor of International Studies, and Dina Badie (above, left), Assistant Professor of Politics and International Studies, about geopolitics and the American presidential election. Hartmann-Mahmud, who spent the 2015-16 academic year on sabbatical in Ethiopia, discusses international opinion about the presidential election, while Badie focuses on American involvement in international issues.

The first two episodes of Centre Point heard Goodman speak with Centre professors Daniel Stroup, Benjamin Knoll and Beau Weston on such issues as teaching the 2016 election, the potential future impact of this election and how culture wars are shaping the electorate. Future episodes include these and other faculty exploring politics in a variety of ways.

Centre Point is hosted by veteran journalist Bill Goodman, who also hosts the Kentucky Tonight television program. Sound engineering for the podcast is provided by Dynamix Productions.

More episodes of Centre Point will become available continually through Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8. To listen to the first two episodes—and to have future episodes download directly to your electronic device as they become available—subscribe to the podcast through iTunes and SoundCloud.
