Episode 33 of the Margaret Chase Smith Library's weekly Zoom interviews is with Dr. James Melcher, a professor of Political Science at the University of Maine at Farmington. We were led to him by his student, Tyler Washburn, who was the subject of episode 31. If you missed that or any others, you can find them on our YouTube channel, TheMCSLibrary. Dr. Melcher has had many connections to the Library over the past two decades and during this conversation amply demonstrates why he is such an engaging teacher and gifted lecturer. Please excuse the host's forgetting to start off in shared screen and be sure to linger, or at least fast forward, to the end to catch Dr. Melcher’s repertoire of political imitations.
