A presidential election occurs every four years in this country. But how do you actually run for president? Who gets to do it? How do you launch a campaign? NHPR’s own Civics 101 has the answer with a new series of “civics shorts,” quick lessons and stories aimed at middle schoolers…but a good refresher for us all. Find more Civics 101 episodes.

Jacqui Fulton is, in her own words, "podcast and public radio’s biggest fan.” She even built a recording studio in her closet.
