Exchange Exemplar: turning politics into more than a hobby

Maybe you're among the people who sit at your computer, reading about events in national politics, sharing news stories on social media about the things you passionately believe in.

Eitan Hersh says you and all the others should cut it out. Or at least get up from the computer and get involved in actual in-the-community political activity.

Hersh, a political scientist at Tufts University, explains his thinking in the book Politics Is for Power: How to Move Beyond Political Hobbyism, Take Action, and Make Real Change.

He joined us to talk about his book and his vision in 2019.
