My latest podcast is a conversation with the most essential political commentator in the US: Glenn Greenwald of He is part of a tradition of American writers – from Thomas Paine to Mark Twain to Noam Chomsky – who embody the best values of America, because it always starts from a simple premise. He looks at the victims of the US government – both at home and abroad – and asks – how would I feel if this was done to me? How would I feel if I was being wiretapped? How would I feel if my house and my family were blown up by robot-bombers sent from thousands of miles away?

In our conversation, we explore how political tribalism often blinds American liberals to crimes committed by Democrats – and how Glenn learned, from his childhood in Florida, to see beyond this.
