Attend Exclusive Student Educate '08 Events!

At many Educate '08 events, there are special receptions for our speakers designed to give Hofstra students one-on-one time with our distinguished guests. Email us to find out more about our student-only opportunities.


Political Séance 101

Political Séance 101 is a weekly WRHU and podcast magazine about all things Political, jointly produced by students and faculty, including hosts Missi Calderone, Sid Nathan and David Green. Segments include election coverage, prominent guest interviews, "Retail Politics" (a student opinion collage), "Political Horror Story of the Week," "News You Didn't Hear About," and much, much more, all delivered in a savory stew of sharp opinion, sharper humor, and self-congratulatory insight! It's Political Séance 101, where we deliver politics - till it hurts. Be sure to listen frequently, and also very often. Above all, though, be sure to always listen responsibly.

Listen to Political Seance 101 on iTunes U. (You must have iTunes installed to listen.)
