This political podcast series will focus on the 2016 Presidential Election. The following podcasts are intended to inform listeners of developments related to the intense nominating contests currently unfolding among the Democratic and Republican candidates for president. No other country on the face of the earth has adopted a system for nominating their national leaders remotely similar to that of the American model. This will be a grueling and highly competitive contest within both parties. Who the two major parties have settled on as their presidential candidates will likely be known by the end of the spring semester.
