The C-SPAN Podcast of the Week often has good content, and I just finished listening to a great discussion: Brookings Institute preview of the fall session of Congress. Very good dialogue, and the panel included two Brookings Fellows (a center-left think tank) as well as a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (a center-right think tank); so there’s a least a tendency toward the center, rather than either party’s extreme wings. Each panelist gave an overview on the first 7 months of the 110th Congress, and then thoughts on how the fall could go…then Q&A. For policy wonks, this is good stuff!
Here’s a working (for now) direct link to the mp3. I don’t know how long that will last, but it may hang around longer than the link in the podcast feed (which drops stuff off pretty quickly).
