Dean Kirk Watson

July 1, 2020

I’m excited to share with you that on July 15 I am starting an interactive webinar called “The Hobby Hour” where we’ll plug into all sorts of policy and politics with a bias toward leading real change for a diverse world. 

The monthly shows will feature folks you elect to office, political journalists, social scientists, and policy wonks (but probably not all at the same time). Viewers will have the opportunity to pose questions during each show.

The inaugural Hobby Hour is July 15 at noon. For our first show, we’ll be looking at what happened in the Texas primary run-off election the day before, what to expect in November, and we might even mention that very special election to replace the dude who left the Texas Senate to become dean of the Hobby School.
