About the Episode

This time on #CompactNationPod—something a little different. We’re releasing a new series of minisodes created by students, for students as part of the American Conversations project at St. Olaf College. Each minisode covers an issue related to the 2020 election, ranging from agriculture and environmental policy to education. Through research and personal anecdotes, the students explore issues and offer calls to action for their peers. Join us this episode as we talk to four of the student podcasters, and check below for the full series of American Conversations minisodes.
