First hour: Discussing U.S.-German relations, with David Gill, Consul General of Germany

Second hour: Ken Rudin, host of "Political Junkie"

How do German political leaders and the German people view the Trump administration? The Consul General of Germany will help us understand the answer this hour. David Gill is in Rochester to attend a showcase at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. The performance is a collaboration between the Eastman School of Music and the German Federal Jazz Orchestra, BuJazzO. The orchestra will perform new compositions for archival films from the vaults at the George Eastman Museum. We’ll hear about the project, and we’ll discuss the state of U.S.-German relations. In studio:

  • David Gill, Consul General of Germany in New York City
  • Matthew Collard, Honorary Consul of Germany in Buffalo
  • Reinhild Steingröver, professor of German at the Eastman School of Music

Then in our second hour, we’re joined by Ken Rudin, host of “Political Junkie.” We sit down with Rudin in studio to discuss the latest in national and New York State politics.
