Listen to Part Two.

Listen to Part Three.

For five decades, Dr. Charles Bullock has been one of the most insightful and astute observers and writers on American politics, and especially politics in Georgia and across the deep South. As the author, co-author, editor or co-editor of 30 books and more than 150 articles, he has advanced the study of political science. Now, as he celebrates 50 years of teaching, Dr. Bullock sits down with WUGA’s Martin Matheny for two wide-ranging discussions about politics in Georgia and beyond. In their first conversation, Bullock weighs in on the last half-century of political history, and shares his insights on a variety of events and topics. Produced in cooperation with the UGA School of Public and International Affairs.

Martin Matheny was promoted to Program Director and Content Strategist on July 1, 2022. He has served as the Executive Producer of our local news program 'Athens News Matters', and he covers local government for WUGA News. He started at WUGA in 2012 as a part-time classical music host and still hosts WUGA's longest-running local program 'Night Music' which is heard on Tuesdays and Wednesdays on WUGA at 10pm. 'Night Music' can also be heard statewide on the GPB Classical stream Mondays and Tuesdays at 8pm. As part of 'Athens News Matters' Martin works with student interns to help cultivate the next generation of Public Media rock stars! In his spare time Martin is an amateur book binder and freelance musician who frequently performs with Big Band Athens playing bass trombone. He lives in Normaltown with his wife, Shaye and dog, Murphy.
