Ask a Political Scientist is a free live-streaming show that brings the latest research and biggest ideas in political science straight to wherever you're riding out this horrible year. We're doing a limited run of our popular show especially tailored to making sense of -- and hopefully making a difference in -- the upcoming election (have you heard? there's an election coming up!). We're talking:

Polarization (Sept. 24): How did this happen, is it as horrible as it seems, and what do we do about it? The media (Oct. 1): Force for good? Force for evil? Somewhere in between? Misinformation (Oct. 8): The true end of humanity or just ONE of the true ends of humanity? Race and politics (Oct. 15): Where do racial attitudes come from, and how do they affect our politics, and vice versa? Political identity (Oct. 22): What does it mean to have a political identity, and how does it affect how we vote? Getting out the vote (Oct. 29): Seriously, though, why do people vote and how do we get more of them to do it!?

Join us every Thursday, 7p ET, between Sept. 24 and the election!
