Higher Ed: Liberal Arts, Democracy, and the Media

What happens when you mix together liberal arts and democracy and then throw in a little media coverage? You get a fascinating discussion about the intersection of those three storied institutions.

In this week's episode of our podcast Higher Ed, KUT's Jennifer Stayton and Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger discuss how liberal arts learning habits can help us navigate our democracy - especially when political discussions in the media sometimes seem more contentious than civil.

This week, Ed and Jennifer talk politics - or more specifically, they talk about talking about politics. They also hash out the solution to the latest math puzzler about truth-tellers and liars. How can you tell them apart? Click here to hear the solution and their whole discussion.

This episode was recorded on August 5, 2015.
