    Introducing: The Experiment

    Introducing: The Experiment

    A new podcast from The Atlantic and WNYC Studios, The Experiment, tells stories from our unfinished country. On the first episode, host Julia Longoria tells the story of the “zone of death,” where a legal glitch could short-circuit the Constitution—a place where, technically, you could get away with murder. At a time when we’re surrounded by preventable deaths, we document one journey to avert disaster.

    Yossi Klein Halevi

    Yossi Klein Halevi

    “I discovered the reality and the power of Palestinian identity by getting a rock thrown at my head.” Israel author Yossi Klein Halevi joins The Atlantic's editor in chief Jeffrey Goldberg to discuss the conflict in the Middle East and his new book Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor. Halevi shares how he believes Israelis need to both remember that they live in a world where genocide is possible and to remember that they were strangers in the land of Egypt. “And if you don’t have both of those sensibilities, then you are a one-dimensional Jew,” says Halevi.

    Madeleine Albright

    Madeleine Albright

    Madeleine Albright considers Donald Trump "the first antidemocratic president in modern U.S. history." Alarmed at the rise in authoritarian tendencies around the world, the former Secretary of State has written a new book, Fascism: A Warning. Twice a refugee of her native Czechoslovakia – first from the Nazi invasion, then later from the Communist coup – Albright is all too familiar with the loss of democracy. In a conversation on stage at Sixth & I with The Atlantic's editor in chief Jeffrey Goldberg, Albright shares her thoughts on President Trump, her worries about fascism, and what it’s like to get interrupted by a porn star.

sadieliv ,

Thank u

Wonderful interview w Jeffrey G & Nicolah HJ
I wish Jeff had interrupted less
I am a Canadian - not a lawyer or teacher (so non-expert)
We invest in public education provincially & federally - is it perfect? No. Is there still disparity? Yes - but the chances a poor kid or a First Nation’s kid will get a solid education are much better. If u look at our system for FNs - egregious. Why? B/c its segregated - on Reserves.
It has to be systemic / policy based w gov’t investment. We are far from lerfect & continue to have policies that hurt our most vulnerable.
There are no volunteers (or rare) who will integrate given the perception/ misperception their child will in some way suffer/ have greater challenges
I have no answers other than the gov’t w tax dollars needs to invest - in teachers, in schools
Etc
Its the foundation of society
& it needs to be FAIR
Thanks for the Sat am think 🤔😉
Awesome show

Must Listen

I only stumbled on this podcast a few weeks ago and now look forward to every interview. I appreciate the in-depth quality. I also appreciate how a question is asked and then the guest is given sufficient time to respond.

Worth your time

A must for Atlantic subscribers. Sometimes gives insights into journalism today.
Interesting guests, Goldberg is a good listener, but doesn't hide his point of view.
Weekly schedule means you don't get overwhelmed.
