Many students have grown uncertain about paying for a college education as national student debt has spiraled out of control. This podcast explores the reasons why student debt has increased so much over the past few decades, analyzes the different debt policies that are being proposed by current 2020 presidential candidates, and offers multiple perspectives on the debt crisis from current college students.

We begin by providing a brief history of American private prisons that focuses on the rapid growth of the prison population since the 1980s. Then we explain and analyze political perspectives from both major parties. Democrats and left-leaning individuals and organizations are generally critical of private prisons because of mistreatment of inmates, reduced opportunities for rehabilitation, and little or no financial savings. Republicans and conservatives, on the other hand, have championed private prisons largely for their financial savings and because they are an opportun

Even today, many disenfranchised and marginalized peoples are struggling for fair treatment in this nation of “equality for all.” This is certainly true for the LGBTQIA+ community. In this podcast, we explore this community’s fight throughout the last century as well as current and past cultural and political shifts regarding the LGBTQIA+ community.

Both parties hold varying stances on healthcare, but one question remains: how should the U.S. government make healthcare accessible for its citizens? In this podcast, we touch on the history of the healthcare system and the health insurance industry before tackling the intricate web of public and privatized medical care. We interview healthcare economist, Ashley Hodgson, share personal experiences, and interrogate assumptions at the core of American health. In our healthcare 101 podcast, we review each party’s major health platforms and investigate socio-economic and demographic concerns before looking at their impact on the 2020 election.

  • American Conversations Minisodes: Foreign Policy

For more information about these minisodes, check out season 4 episode 14, “American Conversations.” The ‘Foreign’ Factor: The Role of Foreign Policy in American Elections Kristian Noll, Aerin O’Malley, Duncan Forbes While Donald Trump’s unpredictable foreign policy has upended many of America’s relationships with other nations, few American voters value foreign policy as much as domestic issues in their vote choice. In this podcast, Aerin O’Malley, Kristian Noll, and Duncan Forbes identify three main issues important to most American voters—healthcare, economy, and electability—and explore how deeply each one is related to foreign policy. Ultimately, they argue that American voters should be more attuned to global developments and value foreign policy more in their voting choices, particularly in the context of the 2020 election.

Klobuchar and former Vice President Joe Biden favor only making 2-year institutions and vocational schools free.
