The State of the Union How would you describe the state of our union in 2013? All could agree that "politically divided" would be a fair assessment. President Obama's address to Congress, and to the nation, -- his fifth state of the union speech -- sets the stage for his second-term. Wednesday on the Sound of Ideas, we'll discuss the broad themes, specific ideas on the economy and other issues and the political realities that await. Join host Mike McIntyre at 9 on 90.3.


Economy, Government/Politics


Kathryn Lavelle, Ellen and Dixon Long Professor of World Affairs, Case Western Reserve University and author of “Money and Banks in the American Political System”
Bill Cunion, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Mt. Union
Congressman David Joyce
Senator Sherrod Brown
