About the Show
A podcast from Slate chronicling Donald Trump’s rise to the presidency and his current administration. Journalists Virginia Heffernan, León Krauze, and Yascha Mounk talk to reporters, historians, psychiatrists, and other experts to help explain who this man is and why this is happening, right now, in the United States of America.
Virginia Heffernan talks to Kate Brannen, editorial director of Just Security, about Gordon Sondland’s opening statement, a glance at Russian interference, Trump’s bizarre letter to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, that bizarre Trump-Pelosi Twitter photo exchange, and the future for U.S. diplomacy.
Podcast production by Melissa Kaplan. Engineering by Merritt Jacob.
