BALLPARK_SocMedBox-TranspIn this week’s episode of The Ballpark, hosts Denise Baron, Sophie Donszelmann, and Chris Gilson dive into the current state of American politics, but instead of giving you a “hot take,” present you with a historical perspective from 1920 and a political theory on polarisation.

This episode features interviews with Mona Morgan-Collins of the LSE’s Government Department, and Professor James Snyder of Harvard University.
