Civics 101

This podcast was launched in January 2017 as a refresher course on the basics of government learned in U.S. history and government classes. Each episode tackles the fundamentals of one facet of the U.S. government, from the role of the White House Chief of Staff, to the purpose and history of the filibuster, to the inner workings of the National Security Council. Ideas for segment topics are often audience-generated. Through this funding, NHPR produced 100 podcast episodes, which have been downloaded more than 7 million times; distributed segments nationally; and built multiplatform assets including e-newsletters, videos and learning resources for classrooms.
