Reason On the Air


Dan Koffler, Reason's Burton C. Gray memorial intern, will be a guest on WHYY's Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane tomorrow. Listeners in the Delaware Valley can hear Dan's mellow tones coming magically out of the airwaves, and the rest of us can tune in online, starting around 10am Eastern time. Topic for discussion: student attitudes on politics; Koffler will be in character as a "young politically active voter" discussing why "Issues are supplanting party affiliation as the new guiding force for the youth vote," and he'll be drawing talking points from his fascinating recent Dissent article that dissected the uselessness of the left, the hopelessness of the right, and the myth of student "apathy." Other panelists include John Della Volpe, who directs Harvard University's annual poll on student political attitudes, so you'll know Koffler's ahead when Della Volpe exclaims, "You, sir, have the boorish manners of Yalie!"
