With Friends Like These explores our differences without letting them divide us. Each week, host Ana Marie Cox has conversations with guests you might not expect, on subjects that you won’t hear anywhere else. She’s not looking for common ground; the show’s about learning to see the world through someone else’s eyes. It’s about exploring differences and not just pitting them against each other.
Ana talks to Republicans, former white supremacists, disability rights activists, novelists and historians — people whose life experiences aren’t like hers. They talk white privilege, mental health, religious upbringing, and the forces that shape our political views. New episodes every Friday.
This week Ed Schupman (manager of the Native Knowledge 360° Initiative and a citizen of the Muscogee Creek Nation of Oklahoma) joins Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) to discuss Thanksgiving and the surrounding myths.
What do Goop and Capitalism have in common? Both refuse to go away despite how much suffering they’ve caused! This week Amanda Mull (@amandamull) joins Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) to discuss these topics and more.
