“Donald Trump, you have sacrificed nothing and no one”

After one of the most tumultuous and historic years in American history, let’s end it on a positive note, and this episode is sure to inspire some confidence in you. First, we’ll dive into the mind of the notorious Russian leader with Steven Lee Myers, author of The New Tsar: The Rise and Reign of Vladimir Putin. The lovely Chenell then addresses issues of race and policing with Michael Eric Dyson, whose new book Tears We Cannot Stop is a must-read. Finally, possibly the greatest interview I’ve had the pleasure of conducting, I speak with Khizr Khan to discuss his book, An American Family. Happy holidays my friends, and we’ll see you in the new year.
