In the second half of the show, Prof. Wolff interviews Eli Campbell on the exploding student debt issue and the campaign to boycott its repayment.

Eli Campbell is a recent graduate from SUNY New Paltz with a degree in Fine Arts and Digital Design & Fabrication. Since Trump's election, he has been independently researching the idea of a Student Debt Boycott as a strategy for organizing student political power outside of electoral politics. He has published a letter at advocating for such a boycott, and outlining some of his conclusions about how and why such a boycott could be effective.
