This week is another in depth Question and Answers session on topics like philosophy, politics and more. We ask a number of heavy hitting philosophical questions this week such as how would Madison explain love, is there such thing as free will and can we understand happiness without sadness.
Following up to our “Running for President” podcast from last week we ask Madison a number of politically motivated questions such as why does politics matter to you, does she think too much money is spent on political campaigns and what does she think are the qualities of a good political leader.
We wrap up with a shortened set of miscellaneous questions such as what do you wish you were more motivated to do, what’s something kids understand but adults don’t and if you could give every person a gift in the world what would it be?
It’s an insightful look at how teens think about today’s issue and we get some very enlightening answers.
In this episode we take a look at the Presidential Election. We’ll explore what the requirements are to run for president and what the process of a presidential election looks like. We’ll explain complicated things like the Electoral College in a simple and easy to understand way. Then we’ll look at some of the reasons people run for president and some of the drawbacks to being president. Finally we put Madison on the spot as our fictional candidate and ask her some of the real questions that our presidential candidates are asked. Some of the answers are very interesting.
In this episode we explore the nature and definition of presidential impeachment while looking at how it has been employed in the past.
