  3. Theda Skocpol on how political scientists think differently about politics

    Political science is a misunderstood discipline. It’s often laughed off by people who think it’s ridiculous that something as human and contingent and unpredictable as politics can be called a science. Chemistry is a science. Politics is a hobby.

    Politics isn’t chemistry. But it is something that can be studied rigorously, and understood using models, evidence and testable theories. In this episode, Theda Skocpol, a political scientist at Harvard (and a former chair of the American Political Science Association!) explains how political scientists learn about politics, what makes their work different both from pundits and from each other, and how it’s helped her understand this insane election. She also talks through some of her research on what really drives the tea party and the ways in which the Koch Brothers are setting up an organization that’s almost become a shadow political party of its own. Don’t miss it.

  9. Chris Hayes on the crisis of elites and the politics of order

    I could describe this podcast, and I will. But the tl;dr is this is one of my favorite conversations so far, and you’re going to enjoy it. So just go listen.

    Chris Hayes is, of course, the host of the MSNBC primetime show, “All In.” He’s also the author of the new book “Colony in a Nation,” as well as (the extremely prescient) Twilight of the Elites.

    But beyond the bio, Chris is a crazily smart and insightful thinker on US politics and society, and he’s in rare form here. Among our topics:

    • The way Donald Trump’s success represents both the problems of elite power and elite weakness

    Who even counts as an elite, anyway? How people decide what to trust The difficulties of trying to approach politics with decency and charity in the age of Trump Why the key to “law and order politics” isn’t law, but order The underestimated power of humiliation in daily American life, and during America’s founding How Chris would cover Trump if he were a White House correspondent The ways in which the media actually can be unfair to Trump Why the fight between Trump and the press is more a staged WWE-match than an actual war The power of seeing politics as a zero-sum competition, even when it isn’t oneAnd much more.
