On this episode of the WUNCPolitics Podcast, David McLennan, professor of political science at Meredith College, stops by to chat about executive transitions, a looming special session, the color purple and street meat.

McLennan discussed strategies for Democratic Governor-elect Roy Cooper in 2017. Cooper will be sworn in as the state’s 75th executive in January, but he faces Republican supermajorities in both chambers of the General Assembly. The political scientist also weighed in on his go-to news sources, a most memorable politician, and how to diversify at a taco stand.​
