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

This week, I interviewed Jemele Hill, contributing writer for the Atlantic and author of the new book, Uphill: A Memoir on how her upbringing informs her impassioned writing and reporting. Then we received insights on the 2022 midterm election results from political reporters across the nation such as Alex Nguyen with the Texas Tribune, Hibah Ansari with Minnesota’s Sahan Journal, and Lauren Gibbons of Bridge Michigan. And on our weekly political roundtable, Sippin’ the Political Tea, I was joined by Kimberly Atkins Stohr, senior columnist for the Boston Globe and inaugural columnist for the Emancipator, and Sabrina Rodriguez, national politics reporter for the Washington Post.
