Mollie Hemingway is the hidden gem of this podcast. Sure, she is smart as a whip but if she read the resolved behavioral norms of the convention of the Democratic Socialist Party it would still activate my almonds. Ben has a great voice for radio. He’s simultaneously very intelligent and possesses a genuinely inquisitive mind.

Insightful and honest
