Every Thursday, join stand-up comedian and political scientist Andrea Jones-Rooy as she takes on today's big questions through a political science lens. She's got new topics, and new guest political scientists and comedians each week, and the floor is always open to questions from you.

This Week’s Topic: How To Stay Woke

The importance of anti-racist work has been front and center of late. But how can we make sure we are continuing to make progress towards a more equitable and just society?

Join us this week to talk with Candis Watts Smith, Ph.D., professor, author, speaker, and "dreamer of a more equitable society". She's the author of Stay Woke, a guide for everyday people on how to continue their anti-racist journey, as well as Racial Stasis, which unpacks the forces that hinder racial progress.

We're joined by comedian and actor Esther Chen for an illuminating and important conversation for all of us who share Prof. Smith's dream of a more equitable society -- and want to do our part to make it a reality.
