#244 Is Journalism Dead? (with Batya Ungar-Sargon)
This week I spoke with Batya Ungar-Sargon, Deputy Opinion Editor of Newsweek (and a past contributor to multiple other major new outlets). Batya is the author of Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy. We talk about the focus of today’s media outlets, and how to reawaken the under-represented population.

#243 Is There A God? (with Ricky Gervais and Bishop Stephen Cottrell)
This week we’re taking a significant issue and presenting opposing views on the subject “Is there a God?” The two arguments come from two former Under the Skin episodes / guests: comedian and atheist, Ricky Gervais vs. the Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell.

#242 Anarchy and Ideas for Change (with Noam Chomsky)
This week I spoke with Noam Chomsky, one of the most influential intellectuals in the world. He is a Professor Laureate of Linguistics at the University of Arizona, a professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the author of more than 150 books!
During our conversation I asked him whether he thought a decentralization of power and anarchism are important subjects for the future. As you’d expect, there were some striking answers from the 93-year-old philosopher.

#241 Why the Economy Is Screwed (with Matt Stoller)
This week I spoke with Matt Stoller, Director of Research at the American Economic Liberties Project. He’s a contributor on the YouTube show "Breaking Points" and author of Goliath: The Hundred Year War Between Monopoly Power and Democracy.
In our conversation I asked Matt about whether it’s time for a revolution--to do something radical? He reveals something very interesting in his response!
