What’s your earliest political memory? That’s the question Professor Carlos Lozada puts to his co-hosts this week on “Matter of Opinion.” The hosts discuss the coups and presidential pinings of their youths before debating what political events may be shaping the attitudes of younger voters today.

Plus, the documentary Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce need to see.

(A full transcript of the episode will be available midday on the Times website.)
