Description

Believe it or not, we’re already halfway through 2020. What a great year so far, huh? Just a delight. That means it’s time for an AMA. Among the questions you asked:


  • If Joe Biden is elected president, what should his administration's first legislative priority be? 


  • What were the best critiques of Why We’re Polarized? 


  • How much of today's political conflict comes down to the Boomer/Millennial divide?


  • What’s your reading process?


  • What does preparation for EK Show episodes look like?


  • If you were only intellectually accountable to beauty and not truth, what religion would you choose? 


  • What’s your favorite non-Vox podcast?


  • What’s your biggest takeaway from year 1 of being a dad?


  • East coast or west coast? 


  • What are the episodes that you have the most fun doing? 


  • What’s an important identity of yours that doesn’t usually come out on the show? 


Roge Karma joins me for this one.
