We start off the year with a healthy dose of political science! Host Greta Anderson talks with Hugh Espy of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement , which is holding an issues summit and candidate forum on January 9, then we interview David Redlawsk, visiting fellow at the Harkin Institute for Public Policy and Citizen Engagement , about his two books on the Iowa caucuses, Why Iowa? and one still in the early stage, on this year's race. Keith Morgan, coordinator for Story County Emergency Management Agency , walks us through the chain of events and decisions set off by a 911 phone call. And correspondent Kay Puttock interviews Robin Switzer of Friends of Emma Lee McCarthy Park and Munn Woods (on Facebook) , about that group's work fending off alien species.
