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.
