Whether it's immigration or the legitimacy of elections, politics and our democracy are at the center of many debates.

"We all think about American politics from a slightly different angle and we always have something to teach each other and we wanted to have those conversations for our students and for the public and that's why we started the podcast," co-host Casey Dominguez, an associate professor of political science and international relations, at the University of San Diego said.

"'A Few Reasonable Words' is a bunch of words but it's trying to get us past talking points," co-host Cory Gooding, also a USD political scientist, said.
