Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Meghan Barr May 08, 2018 The scorchingly irreverent political podcast Pod Save America, created by three wisecracking former protegees of President Barack Obama, has rocketed to fame as the de facto voice of the liberal “resistance” since it debuted in January 2017 as President Trump was ascending to the White House.With its freewheeling, conversational format, the twice-weekly podcast makes you feel as if you’re eavesdropping on a bunch of political insiders at a bar in Washington, D.C. But two of its founders, Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, hail from Massachusetts. They launched Crooked Media — the company behind the Pod — because they wanted “to talk about politics in a way that doesn’t make you want to throw your phone out the window,” as they explain on their website.Favreau, 36, who was Obama’s head speechwriter, … [Read more...] about Pod Save America’s hosts on the year’s best political scandal so far

It’s too rooted in the place’s particulars for that. Even the Buc-ee’s at the truck stop is a gigantic repository of meaning: “It is the largest convenience store in the world — a category of achievement that only Texas would aspire to.” “God Save Texas” is full of such commentary … [Read more...] about In ‘God Save Texas,’ Lawrence Wright Ranges Far and Wide
The latest entry in the ever-popular explaining-Texas genre, “God Save Texas” is a rambling, impressionistic record of ambivalence. by Steven G. Kellman Mon, Apr 9, 2018 at 11:38 am CST In 1845, when the United States was hotly debating the imminent annexation of Texas and the prospect of a war with Mexico, Abraham Lincoln wrote to a constituent: “I perhaps ought to say that individually I never was much interested in the Texas question.” Current interest in the Texas question, however, is a boon to the publishing industry. Reviewing Richard Parker’s Lone Star Nation: How Texas Will Transform America for the Observer in 2014, Brad Tyer could already point to a plethora of recent titles that treat Texas as a divining rod, one that can point us to something even more precious than water in the Chihuahuan Desert: the national soul. Writers are posing the Texas question out of a belief in Texas as synecdoche, the part that will explain the whole. … [Read more...] about In ‘God Save Texas,’ Lawrence Wright Explains the Lone Star State to Outsiders
