“Considering what you said earlier about the effect on Swarthmore being minimal … should Swarthmore divest?”

Joshua Wolfsun sits down with Cynthia Halpern, professor of Political Science, Mark Kuperberg, professor of Economics, and Kate Aronoff, a member of Swarthmore Mountain Justice, to figure out what this whole divestment thing is all about.

Find out in the first of many talk shows hosted by the sharp-witted, unforgiving detective Josh Wolfsun.
