Civics 101

Branded as "the podcast refresher course on the basics of how our democracy works," Civics 101 distills important government topics, such as the separation of powers and the electoral college, for listeners of all ages. Since its launch in 2017, the award-winning podcast has released nearly 200 episodes. Traditional episodes are around 20 minutes long, while "Civics Shorts" ("bite-size" recaps of important topics designed for middle school students) are less than 10 minutes in length. These episodes are available on most popular listening platforms and at the link above. In addition to the podcast, the site offers instructors some great classroom tools, including lesson plans and quizzes, on the Educator Resources page. The Civics 101: NH page contains information about the off-shoot program of that name, a podcast focused on New Hampshire's state government. Looking for a topic not yet covered? Civics 101 welcomes questions via their Ask a Question page (found under the For Educators dropdown menu) or through their social media channels (@civics101pod on Twitter and Instagram). Hannah McCarthy and Nick Capodice host the show, which is produced by New Hampshire Public Radio with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
