An applied research center at the USC Price School of Public Policy
Price Projection Room
The Price Projection Room features conversations about film and television with interesting folks from across USC (theatre, cinema, public policy, and governance) to look at visual storytelling, media literacy, diversity, and the public good.

This podcast is sponsored by Price Video Services and USC Bedrosian Center, and continues our ongoing efforts to bring policy and its impact into the public discourse.
