Episode 20 - Part 2 with Dr. Christopher Sands on the Future of U.S. Policy and Politics
In part 2 of our special two-part series on the U.S. election, Professor Christopher Sands (Director of the Canada Institute of the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Studies) returns to talk about the policy implications of a now known Biden administration. We discuss the President-elect's views on trade and U.S.-China relations, the role of Congress in a post-Trump era, and what it all means for Canada moving forwards.
Episode 19 - Professor Christopher Sands on the U.S. Election Results
When we first scheduled this episode with Dr. Christopher Sands, the Director of the Canada Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Studies, we figured the U.S. Presidential election results would be known. Instead, at the time of recording, the contest was still too close to call. In the first of a special two-part episode, Dr. Sands shares valuable insights about the changing bases of both the Republicans and Democrats, the rise of blue collar millennials as a voting bloc, and what the election could mean for Canada.
The Take shifts focus to the weeks leading up to the U.S. Election with a 5-part series on what this means for Canada. In this episode, host Tom Clark speaks to Christopher Sands, the Canada Institute Director at the Wilson Centre. What can we learn from the first presidential debate and how will the ideas play out in Canada-US relations? Is this the most important election of our lifetime, or will it facilitate a transition into a new era? Tune in to find out.
