The Capitol Connection

Thursdays 3:00PM, Saturdays at 5:30PM

Maybe you voted for them and maybe you didn't, but either way, what they do and how they think affects you. Each week on The Capitol Connection, 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 members from the Assembly and Senate, and other political movers and shakers.

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 Thursdays at 3 PM, Saturdays at 5:30 AM. and Tuesdays at 6:30 PM on HD2 on WAMC Northeast Public Radio. The program is also carried on stations across New York State. Check your local listings for the time and frequency.
