    Hour 1

    One week after the election, guest host TRACEY MATISAK will lead a discussion taking stock of what the mid-term results tell us about the state of the political/cultural divide in Pennsylvania, especially between the Philadelphia metropolitan area and the rest of the state. Our guests will be THOMAS BALDINO, political science professor at Wilkes University; DONNA COOPER, who just joined the Center for American Progress after many years as one of Ed Rendell’s top aides in Philadelphia and Harrisburg; and JAMES O’TOOLE, political editor for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
