Room 33

Welcome to 

I’m Karl Trautman; I teach political science at Central Maine CC in Auburn, Maine. I also write and create imaginary maps. I received my Ph.D. at the University of Hawaii and have taught political science for various colleges and universities, been a newspaper columnist, policy analyst in the Michigan state senate and a research assistant for Meet The Press.

I started a podcast titled Room 33 in June 2011 and ended them in November, 2014. The podcasts are available in the Podcast Library.

You can also access imaginary maps and videos of mine as well.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter (@redhead324).


My last podcast:  Rest in peace, Todd Beamer. Go to my Podcast Library to listen to it. Contact me for sources.
