About the host, Asif Hameed

Being the voice of, and helping to develop, research and produce the podcast at the Department of Political Science has been a fantastic opportunity, especially in light of my return to grad school to complete a PhD in Political Science at Carleton. This incredible journey brings back memories of my years in the field, tapping into and stretching journalistic muscles while working as a freelance journalist. I’ve been part of some of this country’s most prestigious news and media organizations, whether pounding the pavement as a community election correspondent for the Toronto Star or chase producing for CBC Radio.

As the Political Science podcast’s host, I discuss and bring to light issues that matter with academic experts each week, offering a dynamic, intriguing perspective on the current affairs of an ever-changing and ever-challenging world.
