David Landon Cole is a doctoral candidate in political science at the University of York. He was also the captain of York’s team in “University Challenge,” the British quiz show – which has its origins in America’s “College Bowl.” “University Challenge” is Jay’s favorite television show, and he treats Mr. Cole as the celebrity and phenomenon he is, in the Old Country.
They talk about the show, of course. And about life in Britain. And about learning, and the love of it. And about other things. Tune in for a most unusual, interesting, and genial guest.
