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 Chrissy Stroop (@C_Stroop) and Lauren O’Neal (@laurenoneal) join Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) to talk about their childhood fears of hellfire and their new book, Empty the Pews: Stories of Leaving the Church.
This week Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) joins Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) to talk about how we’ve got political nuclear winter, just in time for Christmas. The Impeachment process has not gone… the best.
