Many students have grown uncertain about paying for a college education as national student debt has spiraled out of control. This podcast explores the reasons why student debt has increased so much over the past few decades, analyzes the different debt policies that are being proposed by current 2020 presidential candidates, and offers multiple perspectives on the debt crisis from current college students. Additionally, Carly Eichhorst, the Director of Financial Aid at St. Olaf College, provides insight into the present financial challenges faced by American colleges and universities.

We begin by providing a brief history of American private prisons that focuses on the rapid growth of the prison population since the 1980s. Then we explain and analyze political perspectives from both major parties. Democrats and left-leaning individuals and organizations are generally critical of private prisons because of mistreatment of inmates, reduced opportunities for rehabilitation, and little or no financial savings. Republicans and conservatives, on the other hand, have championed private prisons largely for their financial savings and because they are an opportun

    American Conversations Minisodes: Foreign Policy

    21/05/2020 Duración: 11min

    This podcast minisode was created for students by students at St. Olaf College as part of the American Conversations project. For more information about these minisodes, check out season 4 episode 14, “American Conversations.” The ‘Foreign’ Factor: The Role of Foreign Policy in American Elections Kristian Noll, Aerin O’Malley, Duncan Forbes While Donald Trump’s unpredictable foreign policy has upended many of America’s relationships with other nations, few American voters value foreign policy as much as domestic issues in their vote choice. In this podcast, Aerin O’Malley, Kristian Noll, and Duncan Forbes identify three main issues important to most American voters—healthcare, economy, and electability—and explore how deeply each one is related to foreign policy. Ultimately, they argue that American voters should be more attuned to global developments and value foreign policy more in their voting choices, particularly in the context of the 2020 election.
