From Reform Politics to Personality Politics: Where Did We Go Wrong?

In a recent interview with BFM, Dr Bridget Welsh said something to the effect of “what’s unfortunate about our political landscape right now is that we’ve moved from reform politics to personality politics.” On today’s show, she joins us to discuss how our political landscape morphed from reform-centric to personality-obsessed, and the pros and cons of that.
