In this very special edition of The Unspeakable Podcast, Meghan departs from the interview format and speaks directly to listeners. Reflecting on the current moment as well as on the election four years ago, she talks about how writing her last book inspired her to create the podcast and also how after 25 years of writing "think pieces” she literally doesn’t know what to think anymore. She also talks about how social media has turned “ambient perception” into a substitute for empirical reality and posits that the best antidote to cancel culture is to stop obsessing about it and have faith in the intelligence of audiences.
She also announces that the podcast will be on a brief hiatus until the first of the year. But it will be back!
