The search is on for a new White House Chief of Staff. Who’s up for the task?

Host Ben Kieffer is joined by faculty director of Latina/o Studies and associate professor of Political Science at the University of Iowa Rene Rocha and associate professor of Political Science at Iowa State University Jonathan Hassid for this politics day edition of River to River.


Over the hour, Kieffer, Rocha, and Hassid discuss the heated Oval Office exchange between Representative Nancy Pelosi, Senator Chuck Schumer and President Trump that shocked the internet this week, a new Attorney General nomination, the possibility of criminal justice reform at the federal level, and rollbacks to clean water protections.
