Deep Cuts on Big Issues

Fantastic podcast for getting a deeper cut on contemporary debates you’ve probably thought about already on a surface level: racism, vegetarianism, money in politics, social media in society, even human genetics. In his interviews, Ezra Klein does an excellent job of getting to the nub of the question and teasing out the subtleties and significance of the positions of his guests. Rather than pretend to be impartial or ignorant, he brings his own perspective to the table – sometimes in agreement, sometimes not, he is always fair and patient with his guests, who in turn bring their most considered and developed ideas to the table. Three great recent episodes are: Taking Trump’s Corruption Seriously, The Green Pill, and Jaron Lanier’s Case for Deleting Social Media Immediately. Favourite episode: Rebecca Traister on #MeToo, Female Rage, and Anita Hill’s Legacy.
