The two most unpopular, untrustworthy and polarising presidential candidates in living memory debated each other this week, and some might say Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton lived up to those expectations.
Who won? Who lost? Does it matter? And what should we expect in the next six weeks leading up to the November 8 presidential election?
This week on Race to the White House, Brendon O’Connor, Tom Switzer and Emma Lancaster are joined by Jennifer Hochschild, the Henry LaBarre Jayne Professor of Government at Harvard University, to dissect the first presidential debate.
Emma Lancaster is a multi-platform journalist, and is the producer of The Wire on 2ser 107.3. If you have questions about the podcast or have any suggestions about what we should discuss, contact Emma on Emma@2ser.com.
