Episode Notes

We’re going to go out on a limb and assume that you’ve heard it’s election season. It’s kind of hard to miss.

And while we don’t have a new election-themed episode for you, we did release two interviews earlier this year that we thought would be worth combining into one supersized pod now—not only because they’re still timely, but also because the guests have an interesting connection to one another.

So here, we’re starting out with the episode “On Reporting and Politics,” which came out on June 11th and features Robert Costa of The Washington Post and Washington Week. In the course of listening to it, you’ll get a preview of sorts of episode two with author and retired Notre Dame professor Bob Schmuhl, Robert’s mentor, who talked to us “On the Presidency and Possibility” for an episode that was released January 30th.

Whether you’re listening to these conversations for the first time or checking them out again, we think you’ll enjoy them just as much as we do.
