A special election episode featuring the issues that students care about. Also — do students understand RSS?

Topics this week:

Presidential candidates, Barack Obama and John McCain weigh in on the issues students care about:


  • Student loans: In light of recent scandals, what will the fed do?

  • Science and Technology: with the U.S. behind the curve, both parties have plans.

  • College costs: As tuition constantly rises, how will McCain and Obama keep things sane?

  • Federal Funding: Earmarks direct Congressional spending towards universities, but the schools might be better without them.

  • The Drinking Age: The Amethyst Initiative has made this something worth talking about. And both of the candidates have weighed in.

Plus, we asked 101 students: What is RSS? Their answers might surprise you.
