This Week on Free Will: Michael Berube

This week on Free Will, I chat with Michael Berube, author of What’s Liberal About the Liberal Arts about the cultural significance of Obama’s victory, the student vote, and the liberalizing effects of going to college and otherwise being around people different from you, among other things.

Since I was in Iowa City speaking to Michael in State College, I feel it is appropriate to advertise the fact that on Saturday, a couple days after our chat, the unranked Iowa Hawkeyes defeated the 3rd-ranked Penn State Nittany Lions by a score of 24-23. This strikes me as important.
