Pub Crawl: Brown Politics Memo

According to Ben Kutner ’14, Brown students love to talk — and he’s no exception. The founding Editor-in-Chief of Brown Politics Memo had plenty to say during a thoroughly enjoyable fireside Blue Room chat with Pub Crawl about nonpartisanship, accessibility, everyman expertise, “high-falutin’” jargon, and hypothetical fistfights. The Memo is an undergraduate-run online-only newspaper that launched in March 2012. It both covers factual news and publishes original opinions on Rhode Island, United States, and international issues. News junkies, consider yourselves satisfied. Expect an abundance of content as the election campaigning and debating rage on!
