About the Podcast

The Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast launched in March of 2015, the creation of Nanophysicist Mike Stopa and Todd Feinburg, a radio talk host from Boston.

We are producing a weekly radio program with the hope of serving up thoughtful and fun debate about the big stories of the week. The show is taped on Tuesdays for posting that evening – and we expect to add spontaneous, bonus programs from time to time.

The use of the “Harvard” name originates from the show being an offshoot of the Harvard Conservatives Lunch Club, an extended group of friends and colleagues who get together for occasional lunches which Mike began in the Spring of 2011 in Cambridge.

Mike was a Harvard physicist at the time (he’s since departed for MIT). Todd was a member of the lunch club only because he is such a scintillating conversationalist – he has never had any affiliation with Harvard.
