Center podcasts are a great way to keep up with today’s poverty research and public policy. We record most of our conference presentations and talks by our seminar speakers. We also produce exclusive content, such as our Poverty in Focus series, as well as expert discussions on research.

In this podcast graduate student affiliate Ethan Krohn interviews Ann Huff Stevens on the impact of career and technical education (CTE) programs on labor market outcomes. Those facing job loss and displacement are often referred to training programs, despite limited evidence about how well these programs work to support earnings. Research conducted by Ann Stevens, Michal Kurleander and Michel Grosz using data on the California community college system helps fill this gap in evidence.
