This edition: Political Winds

Episode Details

Original tape date: November 7, 2012.

First aired: November 7, 2012.

How, why did the president win? We hear from Greg David, Crain’s columnist and director of the Business & Economics program at the CUNY Journalism School, and Mark Winston Griffith, community activist, and executive director of The Brooklyn Movement Center.

Then we take a moment to hear about the weather we are experiencing right now. Many are especially vulnerable because this wintry storm, named Athena, comes in wake of hurricane Sandy. Adam Sobel knows about storms and New York’s infrastructure. He is professor of Earth & Environmental Science at Columbia Lamont-Doherty Observatory.

And finally we look at what the president’s victory means to New Yorkers and the nation, and what can we expect of a 2nd term president? Joining us, Ester Fuchs, political scientist at Columbia University’s School for International and Public Affairs; and on the phone, Brooklyn College presidential historian KC Johnson.
