In the first part of Michael's conversation with New York Magazine's Rebecca Traister, they discuss the surprising aspects of Biden's first six months in office, the promise of America's political winds blowing to the left and the peril of permanent minority rule in America.
Next week, we will air Part Two of Michael's conversation with Rebecca: an unplanned and challenging discussion about #MeToo, Harvey Weinstein, sexual harassment in progressive media, and what we can do about it.
