    Why Endorse Two Candidates?

    Why Endorse Two Candidates?

    Which 2020 Democratic contender would be the best nominee to take on President Trump? The New York Times editorial board gave its endorsement to two candidates -- Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar -- and the columnists disagree with it. Katie Kingsbury, who leads the editorial board and hosts "The Choice" podcast about the endorsement, joins the columnists to make the case for the dual endorsement. Then, David pitches his colleagues on an unorthodox thought experiment meant to help deflate America’s partisan tensions.

    Introducing 'The Choice' from NYT Opinion

    Introducing 'The Choice' from NYT Opinion

    Since 1860, the New York Times editorial board has been endorsing a candidate for president (they went for the tall Republican that year). Historically they've made their decision after off-the-record interviews with the leading candidates, followed by intense internal debate over who would make the best leader for the era's particular needs. But this year the board is breaking its own rules and showing the work behind their endorsement. They're sharing all the conversations that led them to make their decision. "The Choice," a limited-run daily podcast from The New York Times Opinion section, brings you inside the boardroom every day for a different primary candidate's endorsement interview. You'll also get a daily bonus episode of the board's deliberations after the candidate leaves the room, and go deeper into a different key issue in the 2020 race. In our series finale, you'll hear the board debate all the candidates and make their final decision. Host Katie Kingsbury will join the columnists on "The Argument" next Thursday to make the case for the candidate the board endorses. Until then, tune in to "The Choice" to help you make your own. Produced by At Will Media.

A must!

This podcast is always thought-provoking and often prompts me to re-examine my own political opinions.

In this “era of Trump“ and “culture wars“ where most people never have open, in-depth discussions in person with people on the “other side of the political fence,” this podcast offers a kind of how-to manual.

Ross, Michelle, and David always treat each other with respect — and good humor — and are of course experts in using reasoned argument and empirical facts to support their points of view.

Enlightening and enjoyable!

One caveat: I do not recommend this podcast to “Twitter trolls.” They no doubt would not feel at home here. Where is the fun in disagreeing with someone constructively and respectfully?
