hosted by Ben Philpott & Jay Root

Each week KUT's Ben Philpott and the Tribune's Jay Root provide a rundown
of the week's campaign actions and bring you interviews with people who
make a living working on, covering or commenting on the campaigns.

This week on The Ticket 2016: Republicans and Democrats aren’t the only parties running for President. There will be several 3rd party candidates trying their luck in November. The Texas Tribune’s Jay Root and KUT’s Ben Philpott talk with Libertarian party Presidential hopeful Gary Johnson about his efforts to break through in a media world controlled by the two-party system.

They’ll also chat with Political Science Professor Brian Smith about the history of 3rd parties.
