The partisan divide in politics has made it hard to get much of anything accomplished.

The often bitter tenor of debate between Republicans and Democrats have left people in many cases talking past each other rather to each other.

How that divide came to be and what can be done about it was the topic of a conversation between former Vice President Joe Biden and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at the University of Delaware hosted by the Biden Institute and UD’s Center for Political Communication.

Their spirited conversation focused on the breakdown of the norms of civility they say started years ago, and has continued, even accelerated, in recent years

UD Associate Professor of Communication Dannagal Young studies politics and communications and was there for the discussion.  She visited The Green this week to take a deeper look at what they had to say.


Delaware ranks high among states most affected by the nation’s opioid epidemic. 308 people died from overdose in the First State last year, and the total this year is up to 182.

Director of Public Health Dr. Karyl Rattay spoke with Delaware Public Media’s Nick Ciolino about the severity of the opioid epidemic, and what the state is doing to reduce the amount of overdose deaths.


Brandywine River Museum of Art

A new immersive video exhibition is merging arts and images of nature together at the Brandywine River Museum of Art.

Entitled Dylan Gauthier:  Highwatermarks, the exhibition has transformed the Museum’s third floor gallery with a 60-foot-long, floor-to-ceiling, multi-channel video projection that narrates the path of the Brandywine River and documents the local communities through which it flows.

For this week's Arts Playlist, Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele sat down with Dylan Gauthier to discuss this fascinating new exhibit.
