Description

Jon Favreau an American political commentator, creator and co-host of Pod Save America and the former Director of Speechwriting for President Barack Obama. In this chapter of Experts on Expert, Jon discusses his heartbreak on the 2004 Kerry campaign, his devotion to the democratic ideal of persuasion and he details his farcical experience sharing a name with the other Jon Favreau. Dax chooses to see America as two spouses in a rocky marriage and Jon shares the story of his first meeting with Barack Obama. The two debate whether it's productive to be inundated with current events, they pinpoint what distinguishes an average speech from a great one and Dax wonders if Jon is the Ma Anand Sheela to Obama's Bhagwan.

C and Es is clever when you know that members of the Church of England used to be called C of Es. Sedaris will know, now that he lives in England

C Cammack I slowly got better at that from writing things or typing them down. I assume speaking it is different. I can't confidently say I don't do it myself. I've actually never thought of this. Now it's a rabbit hole... Thanks Obama!
