David Frisk, Resident Fellow, The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI), was interviewed this week on WUTQ-FM’s public affairs program “Talk of the Town.” A frequent guest on the Utica, NY-based show, Dr. Frisk, a political scientist as well as an award-winning journalist, discussed the meaning of the term “socialism” and its increasingly common use in American politics in recent years.

“It’s always great to chat with co-hosts Rocco LaDuca, Mark Wolber, and Jason Aiello on this wide-ranging program,” Frisk said. “They want their listeners to understand current events from many angles, both in terms of political viewpoint and informationally. I’ve always felt they wanted more than simple day-to-day punditry, and for that reason especially, I’ve always looked forward to being with this friendly trio.”

Dr. Frisk has taught the AHI’s popular continuing education classes in history and political science since 2013. He also assists with the student-run publication Enquiry at Hamilton College and provides intellectual mentoring to AHI summer interns. The author of If Not Us, Who? William Rusher, National Review, and the Conservative Movement (ISI Books, 2012), he is working on his second book, a biography of the political philosopher Willmoore Kendall, to be published by Encounter Books.
