Topical Currents

Why Lawmakers Choose Myths Over Evidence

04/01/13 - Monday’s Topical Currents is with Professor David Schultz, author of AMERICAN POLITICS IN THE AGE OF IGNORANCE.  He contends that lawmakers on all levels ignore clear evidence and prefer myths of belief when creating legislation and policies . . . and that money, special interests and simple ideology figure in recycling old policies.  That’s Topical Currents . . . Monday at 1pm on WLRN-HD1, rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live show.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
