This week on the Thinking Global Podcast, Dr. Kathleen McInnis (@kjmcinnis1) speaks with the Thinking Global team about podcasting the political. Dr. McInnis chats with Kieran (⁠⁠⁠@kieranjomeara⁠⁠⁠) and Jennifer (@JenniferEngl) about how they became a podcasting political scientist, the ‘smart women, smart power’ programme, why political podcasting is so vital, and how we can think to a greater extent about podcasting the political.
