Browncast Episode 29: Zaid Jilani on the discourse, the primaries, and culture

Another BP Podcast is up. You can listen on LibsyniTunes, Spotify,  and Stitcher. Probably the easiest way to keep up the podcast since we don’t have a regular schedule is to subscribe at one of the links above.

You can also support the podcast as a patron (the primary benefit now is that you get the podcasts considerably earlier than everyone else…). Would appreciate more positive reviews.

Today I talk to Zaid Jilani, who runs the Extremely Offline podcast, among other things.

We talk about his current project, trying to bring people with different views together, as well as where his own views came from. Zaid also dished a little dirt on Ezra Klein and Matt Yglesias, and talked about growing up in the “Dirty South” (OK, he didn’t say it was the “Dirty South”, but it was the sort of rural South). Finally, we talked a fair amount about Democratic party politics and primaries, a topic which Zaid has a lot of knowledge of.

    In India we say the opposite 😛

  2. I must say I quite enjoyed this podcast, especially all the inside baseball about the world of political writers/wonks like Matt Yglesias, Ezra Klein etc. A salary of over $500k for Ezra Klein for what he writes for Vox? My goodness. There are plenty of journalists writing better and more for $50k, and many for no money at all.
