About this series
In January, POTUS 2016 officially becomes POTUS 2017 with popular WNYC host Brian Lehrer. The weekly half-hour program keeps watch on the oval office with a roundtable of guests. A regular segment, “Evidence-Based Politics,” looks deeply into one timely issue with a researcher who has published a rigorous study on the subject. The segment is designed to pour cold hard facts on the overheated political rhetoric that can misinform the public and policy-makers.
