This was WPRB’s 2018 pledge drive!! Brian and Stevie started out the show with science news – ancient sloth hunts uncovered and a study shows that freedivers from Southeast Asia evolved to have bigger spleens. Then Professor Sam Wang, founder of the Princeton Election Consortium and co-host of the Politics and Polls podcast, joined Stevie on the mic to discuss gerrymandering in the US and specifically in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Then we get in to the more general topic of the scientific study of elections.
Additionally, you’ll hear Brian and Stevie talk past shows and why they love WPRB.
