The Capitol Connection

Thursdays, 3:00 pm, Saturdays at 5:30 am

Maybe you voted for them and maybe you didn't, but either way, what they do and how they think affects you. You can keep yourself abreast of political developments and gain a little insight into how New York State's politicians think when you listen in as political scientist Dr. Alan Chartock holds conversations with... New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver ...Governor Andrew Cuomo....Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos...Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb.... members from the Assembly and Senate, and others... each week on The Capitol Connection.

Provocative topics, tough questions, spontaneity, and a casual low-key format make The Capitol Connection one of WAMC's most listened-to offerings. Tune in Fridays at 10:30 pm on WAMC/Northeast Public Radio, a repeat broadcast on Saturdays at 1pm. The program is also carried on stations across New York State. Check your local listings for the time and frequency.
