WUNCPolitics Podcast: A Conversation With Chris Cooper

Several of North Carolina's congressional districts are the focus of this week's politics podcast.

There are special elections for the 3rd and 9th seats next month. Sitting U.S. House member David Price, a Democrat, reversed course in recent days and now backs an impeachment inquiry of President Trump. To discuss those stories, as well as the cluttered Democratic presidential race, is Chris Cooper, professor of political science and public affairs at Western Carolina University.

Jeff Tiberii first started posing questions to strangers after dinner at La Cantina Italiana, in Massachusetts, when he was two-years-old. Jeff grew up in Wayland, Ma., an avid fan of the Boston Celtics, and took summer vacations to Acadia National Park (ME) with his family. He graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and moved to North Carolina in 2006. His experience with NPR member stations WAER (Syracuse), WFDD (Winston-Salem) and now WUNC, dates back 15 years.
