The Capitol Connection | WAMC

The Capitol Connection

Thursdays, 3:00 p.m - 3:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 5:30 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.

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 the governor, the comptroller, members from the Assembly and Senate, and other political movers and shakers.

The program is carried on stations across New York state. Check your local listings for the time and frequency.
