Yesterday, I presented my recent New America white paper on college assessment at their headquarters in Washington DC. It was broadcast live on C-SPAN. I can’t watch it myself, too painful, but I hope you’ll check it out.
My latest Observer column is on Bill Clinton and why he was bad for the left, for Democrats, and for America. Featuring excellent artwork by the great Steve Brodner.
I did an episode of David Parson’s excellent podcast The Nostalgia Trap. It’s probably the most comprehensive dive ever into my politics and where they come from. Topics include the self-flattery of antifascism, growing up at Wesleyan University, the importance of leadership in activism, why I don’t engage in performative political deference, and whether or not I’m an FBI agent. I had a great time, please check it out.
