    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

    “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.

Please stop interrupting your guests

I really enjoy this podcast but I do wish that Jeffrey Goldberg would step back a bit. Especially in the beginning of his interview with Chimamanda Adichie, he kept recentering himself as if to prove he’s clever or cool... and from my perspective it just came across as disrespectful to his guest. The dynamic changes for the better as the interview proceeds... but the beginning almost lost me.

Obama

I don't see Obama or the Democrat party being a pro democracy organization. With all the censorship of conservative voices, the DOJ using resources to go after parents, free speech (Twitter files), pro lifers and DEI ( new racism) is what I would expect to see from say 1933 Germany. Was a subscriber up to 2016 when I saw the left swing.

Intelligent, fascinating

Intelligent interviews with a wide variety of fascinating guests. My only wish is that each interview were longer because I'm always sorry when they end.
