Dr. Alan Chartock

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the issue of the legislative filibuster, and the significance of West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin III should Democrats succeed in eliminating it. Dr. Chartock also comments on reports that fewer people are pursuing jobs as teachers during the pandemic. Also in the headlines: the massive cargo ship Ever Given, which has been stuck in the Suez Canal since last week, is now partially afloat. 

Dr. Alan Chartock is professor emeritus at the University at Albany. He hosts the weekly Capitol Connection series, heard on public radio stations around New York. The program, for almost 12 years, highlighted interviews with Governor Mario Cuomo and now continues with conversations with state political leaders. Dr. Chartock also appears each week on The Media Project and The Roundtable and offers commentary on Morning Edition, weekdays at 7:40 a.m.
