Most of my writing at Slate falls into at least two of these categories: current politics, cultural history, LGBT issues, and data. I’m particularly interested in comedy, understanding it and doing it.
“Trump Hasn’t Killed Comedy,” a Slate cover story (7/19/2017)
“Side Eye: Boys Kissing Boys Who Don’t Actually Like Boys” (1/13/2017, with J. Bryan Lowder)
“‘I’m Glad That I Don’t Have to Figure Out the Meaning of Life,’” a conversation with the late poet Max Ritvo (10/5/2016, with Shon Arieh-Lerer)
“More—And Less—Than a Raisin in the Sun,” a theater review of the 2017 eclipse (8/21/2017)
“The 66 Things I Am Worried Will Go Wrong for Hillary Clinton in the Debates,” a sad relic (9/26/2016)
