WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

Over the last several years, there's been an increased interest, both in the public and in the media, in the interconnections between information, media and politics. Understanding those interconnections only seems to be growing in importance, as a number of countries, including the US, prepare for a new round of national elections. The connections between politics, technology and information are the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories. Rosemary Pennington is joined by regular panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami Statistics Department and Richard Campbell of Media, Journalism and Film. Their guest is Megan Metzger, a research scholar and associate director for research at Stanford University's Global Digital Policy Incubator program. Metzger's work focuses on how technological changes facilitate changes in the way political actors access and distribute information. Metzger traveled to Miami on a visit sponsored by the Havighurst Center for Russian and post-Soviet studies as part of the colloquium series on Russian media strategies at home and abroad.
