Host Catherine Clark goes beyond politics to provide a window into the lives of public figures through informal, one-on-one, out-of-studio interviews. Beyond Politics reveals the personal, human side of life in the spotlight, showcasing guests the way they really are – sometimes serious, often hilarious, spirited trailblazers, some young, some older, most hugely committed to their jobs and families – all in all, a lot like the rest of us.
