Dr. Alan Chartock

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses the ongoing murder trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the death of George Floyd. In testimony Thursday, pulmonary specialist Martin Tobin said Floyd died of a lack of oxygen from being pinned to the pavement with Chauvin's knee on his neck. Dr. Chartock also comments on Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance's plans to retire at the end of the year. 

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.
