Educational content is doing extremely well on the internet, from science and math channel on youtube, Khan Academy, Great Courses, and many other platforms. They've done well by realizing that the internet provides an opportunity to reach many more people than ever before. By making content that is both informative and relatable, and linking it to our real world, they have been able to break down complex ideas about history, art, and the sciences for everyday people that love to learn but hate how dull and abstract education often is. 

At Connected Politics, I hope to deliver similarly relatable and educational content about political science, by doing something political scientists often fail to do - relating it to phenomenon in current events and pop culture. Political science is the study of how humans behave toward one another in society. It's not always about elections, or candidates, or laws, or 30-second ads on TV. 

What does basketball teach us about the two-party system in the United States? What does Harvey Weinstein and the Arab Spring have in common? Does Game of Thrones have a realistic political philosophy? These are the kinds of question I'd like to answer, and try to avoid the unintelligible shouting matches of right vs. left. Because at its core, politics is about people. My hope is that if we can be more educated on how people make decisions, then we can build a better politics for ourselves.
