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 show: The Tribune’s Jay Root and KUT’s Ben Philpott record the podcast LIVE at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin just before the September 26th Presidential debate. Ben and Jay get the crowd ready for the debate by reviewing some of the most memorable debate moments in history. UT-Austin Politics Project Director Jim Henson also joins them to talk about how debates have affected Presidential races. And whether the post-debate spin now defines debates more than the actual action on the stage.
