WHAT: This is a special edition of Ask a Political Scientist where we will be discussing the protests unfolding across the country. Donations made during this show will go to Black Lives Matter.

WHO: Political science guest bio: Omar Wasow is an Assistant Professor in Princeton’s Department of Politics. His research focuses on race and politics, protest movements and statistical methods. Before joining the academy, Omar served as a regular on-air technology analyst and was the co-founder of BlackPlanet.com, a social network he helped grow to over three million active users. In 2003, he helped found a high performing K-8 charter school in Brooklyn. He is a Henry Crown Fellow at the Aspen Institute. He received a PhD from Harvard University and a BA from Stanford University.

Comedian guest bio: Born and raised just outside of Atlanta, Drexton Clemons has captivated crowds with his oddball and thesis-driven commentary on music, current events, and relationships. After years in the Atlanta comedy scene, he moved to New York and has since started the “See Something Say Something Comedy Show,” where he brings headlining and touring comics to unconventional places to do stand up, including Washington Square Park and the New York Subway. He has been featured in A3C, the Athens Fringe Festival, the Harlem Comedy Festival, the DC Comedy Festival, and he recently released his debut comedy album, And Another Thing!
