LEXINGTON, Ky. (May 17, 2016) – Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. 

          That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a new weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world. 

          The first podcast, appropriately enough, focuses on election-year politics and the presidential election. To provide insight and context on an extraordinary and historic election, UK political science professor and elections expert Stephen Voss discusses at length the forces shaping this year’s presidential race, his insights on both the Democratic and Republican parties, and an individual candidate or two, who may be making headlines. 

Voss -- https://polisci.as.uky.edu/users/dsvoss -- is quoted extensively in state and national publications for his views on politics. He is seen as a dispassionate and in-depth observer of the political scene, attributes on full display in this first episode of “Behind the Blue.” 

          Stay tuned for new episodes of “Behind the Blue” each week. UK’s latest medical breakthroughs, research, artists and writers will be features, along with the most important news impacting the university.
