C&S Presents: David Birdsell on Presidential Debates

Few people have spent as much time studying presidential debates as David Birdsell. The Dean of Baruch College’s School of Public and International Affairs is an expert on the topic. He joined City & State Editorial Director Michael Johnson to discuss last week’s event at Hofstra University and what it means in the larger context of political discourse. Plus, his school just received an enormous gift of $30 million dollars from former Alumnus Austin Marxe – a game changer for the public institution. He tells us how that money will have a positive impact on the city, as well as the college.
