Wisconsin historian joins ‘Two Bald Guys’ to discuss the history of presidential transitions, insurrections and last week’s unrest at the Capitol

Join us at noon on Friday for “Two Bald Guy’s” first episode of the year. We will discuss presidential transitions of power, inaugurations and the historical context of events in Washington D.C. last week. Our guest will be University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point history professor Brett Barker.

Topics to be covered:

  • How does this transition of presidents compare to historical transitions of power?
  • How unusual was the citizen protest and assault on the U.S. Capitol?
  • Was the Capitol riot a small hiccup or a sign of existential danger for American democracy?
