This week on Eastern Standard:

The latest in our ongoing series about America’s flirtation with autocracy. Our guest is Matthew Howell, Associate Professor of Government at Eastern Kentucky University. Believing the structure of American democracy to be sound, time-tested, and resilient, Dr. Howell is confident the country can weather the 2024 presidential election. 

Zachary Clifton, a senior at Corbin High School, is the Legislative Policy Coordinator for the Kentucky Student Voice Team. Zachary's role is to press state legislators to listen to the needs and concerns of those who understand them best: students.

Tom Eblen, host of Eastern Standard’s series on Kentucky writers, has a conversation with former Kentucky Poet Laureate and author Richard Taylor about his non-fiction book, “Fathers.”

And Crystal Jones checks up on those New Year's Resolutions we made. 

Tom Martin hosts Eastern Standard, a weekly radio magazine of interviews and stories about interesting people, places, and things happening in the Commonwealth.
