With Election Day 2016 drawing closer, important discussions about political issues continue on Centre Point, an eight-part podcast series in which Centre College faculty discuss the pertinent issues. Listeners get a better understanding of political complexities as well as a glimpse of the fascinating conversations that take place in Centre classrooms every day.
On the eighth and final episode of the Centre Point election cycle podcast, host Bill Goodman talks with Tony Haigh, professor of dramatic arts and a native of Britain, about the effect of the Brexit vote on global politics and its potential parallels to the 2016 presidential election.
Earlier episodes of Centre Point heard Goodman speak with Centre professors Haigh, Dina Badie, Lori Hartmann-Mahmud, Ben Knoll, Daniel Stroup and Beau Weston on such issues as the theatricality of politics, teaching the 2016 election, the potential future impact of this election and how culture wars are shaping the electorate.
The Centre Point 2016 election series 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.
