In episode 30 we rejoin the adventures of Ross Douthat Boy Detective with a little help from our producer, Brendan James aka @deep_beige. First we discuss the headlines that mattered this week, such as Rich Piana's divorce, an article about us, and Brendan's latest piece in Slate.
But the true meat of this episode is the grandest Chapo Reading Series yet -- a return to the source, the Book of Ross, "Privilege," which we first unearthed all the way back in Episode 3. Having mastered the initial texts of Douthat, we dive deeper into the record of his life and loves at Harvard, his hatred of birth control, and his fevered visions of jihadists killing goth kids in Boston.
