Pressing Pause: Our Body Politic is on hiatus.     |     Click here to learn more.    

This week on Our Body Politic, I interviewed Anita Kumar, longtime reporter and first-ever senior editor of Standards & Ethics at POLITICO, on the 2022 midterm elections landscape. Kumar and I delved into how issues like political violence and extremism, abortion rights, and even media coverage are playing for the upcoming elections. Then, I interviewed Carmen Rita Wong, writer, journalist, finance expert and author of the new memoir “Why Didn’t You Tell Me?” Wong candidly shared how discovering a series of family secrets surrounding her heritage led her to re-examine her race and culture, while also forging a path for discovering and living as her most authentic self.
