About Us

The University of Chicago Public Policy Podcasts (UCPPP) is a Harris Student Organization that aims to promote public discourse by creating a series of multi-segment, multi-format podcasts that discuss policy issues using an interdisciplinary approach.

We create and publish original content, including an innovative podcast called, "What If..." The episodes incorporate data science, interviews, and storytelling, resulting in compelling shows on important and relevant issues in public policy. Our episodes integrate interviews (with policy leaders, students, faculty, and staff), debates, testimonials, interstitial music, and more - resulting in a fresh approach to important policy issues that are relevant in the current climate. We also engage with communities in Hyde Park and the greater Chicago area, particularly with our upcoming podcast, "Chicagoland."

UCPPP meetings are open to all students at the University of Chicago. You have heard from us; now let's hear from you!
