CARPE DIEM: New Jersey Politics, Post Bridgegate

Airing December 5th - December 9th, 2016



On this episode of Carpe Diem, host Merrill Brown, director of the School of Communication and Media at Montclair State University is joined by Kate Zernike, national correspondent for the The New York Times.
