About this episode

Nicholas Kristof

Hosted by Douglas Blackmon

These are perplexing times in American life. We may be closer to nuclear war than at any time since the Cuban Missile Crisis. Our relationships with historical allies are sharply strained. US political parties have internal divisions. We appear to be a society that is collectively confused about who we are. For insight on this week's episode, we’re joined by one of the great American voices of reason, NICHOLAS KRISTOF, a columnist for The New York Times and winner of two Pulitzer Prizes. Kristof's twice-weekly op-eds have long examined the most pressing issues facing the United States both domestically and abroad, including a seven-part series entitled “When Whites Just Don’t Get It” and, recently, an account of his five-day trip to North Korea called, “Inside North Korea, and Feeling the Drums of War."
