Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Hosted by Andrea Jones-Rooy, a stand-up comedian who holds a Ph.D. in political science, this comedic mini-lesson in political science features a guest political scientist who discusses their research and takes audience questions live over YouTube chat.

Previous topics have included: why our primary election process sucks, how to hold leaders accountable for crises, how to get voters to care about leaders lying, and whether political endorsements make a difference.

Upcoming topics include: how anger affects political mobilization (and how that intersects with race), politics and anxiety, China's social media, political parties, and more.
