The Civics Renewal Network is excited to welcome the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center and Civics 101 Podcast as new partners!
Launched by New Hampshire Public Radio in 2017, Civics 101 Podcast is the podcast refresher course on the basics of how our government works. Hosts Nick Capodice and Hannah McCarthy take an expansive view of civics, exploring not only the institutions of government but also the rights and responsibilities of citizens no matter their age. Episodes are about 15 minutes and released every other Tuesday along with related educational resources.
The U.S. Capitol Visitor Center is the visitors’ gateway to the Capitol. Through educational programming, tours and exhibits, we inform, involve and inspire every visitor to the Capitol. Educational materials celebrate the art, architecture and history of the Capitol. We strive to stimulate discussions of the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship in our representative democracy and explain the role that Congress plays in our daily lives.
