Pandemic Politics: Where Power Lies

We continue a compare and contrast series with Eric Hirsch, Urban Sociology Professor at Providence College, Rhode Island. The smallest state in the union is also one of the oldest.

Nate Bauer, Director of University of Alaska Press, and Alexander Hirsch, UAF political scientist, discuss with Eric the contrasting power dynamics of the two states.
