27:05 Sarah Kendzior is a writer and scholar. She is the Co-host of a very important podcast called @gaslitnation

She is the author of the bestsellers THE VIEW FROM FLYOVER COUNTRY (2018) and  HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT (2020) which we talked about today

HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT is a history of the past forty years of American decline and how Trump and his cohort both enabled and benefited from elite criminal impunity. It’s also the story of what it’s like to live day to day in an America dominated by a transnational crime syndicate masquerading as a government — and what that entrenched corruption means for future generations. If you want to understand where we’re going, you need to know the truth about how we got here

1:08:17 David Litt  a former speechwriter for President Obama and is also a NY Times best selling author of Thanks, Obama: My Hopey Changey White House Years. We talked about his really great, important, well written and researched new book Democracy in one book or less
