Honors Alum Ben Goodman ’12 Thesis Work Featured in FiveThirtyEight Podcast

Honors Political Science graduate, Ben Goodman ’12, studied four major Democratic Party nominating process reform commissions over the 1970s and 1980s for his thesis.

Last summer, FiveThirtyEight found Ben’s thesis online and asked to interview him about it. Through this, Ben ended up contributing to FiveThirtyEight’s “The Primaries Project” podcast series, which launched this morning. The new series outlines the history of how and why we pick party nominees the way that we do.
