In this episode of the PS You’re Interesting podcast, Jeff Jenkins talks with Danielle Thomsen, Assistant Professor of Political Science at UC Irvine. Her research in American Politics primarily falls into looking at Congress, parties, and gender & politics.
Jeff Jenkins talks with Pamela Ban, UC San Diego about her recent research. First, she looks at how policy outcomes might change as Congress has a bit more gender representations. Then they discuss the revolving door and lobbying – how the cool off period has affected the lobbying industry. Finally, she thinks about how to use empirical data from newspapers to think about political power.
