WOSU hosted NPR’s Neal Conan and Ken Rudin for an evening of politics, trivia, puzzles and jokes during the “Political Junkie Road Show” on Wednesday, October 10.

Conan, host of Talk of the Nation and Rudin, of NPR’s “Political Junkie” blog, were joined by a panel of journalists and members of political families to discuss the presidential election as well as Ohio’s Congressional races.

WOSU’s News and Public Affairs Director Mike Thompson was joined by Dr. Jason Johnson of Politic365, and Karen Kasler, Ohio Public Radio and Television Statehouse News Bureau Chief, to discuss Ohio politics and national races.

Conan and Rudin gave audience members a look inside political families by talking with Connie Schultz, the wife of Senator Sherrod Brown and a Pulitizer Prize winning journalist, and former Ohio Gov. Bob Taft, whose family enjoys a rich political history including his great-grandfather President and Supreme Court Chief Justice William Howard Taft.
