Further, he's the host of the mightily popular and well noted Informed Dissent podcast that digs in on many hot-button topics. He's also a writer on Substack and author of the new book, "Raising Victims: The Pernicious Rise of Critical Race Theory (Salem Books, 2023). In this conversation, we discuss his journey to launching Informed Dissent and his book, the role of art and music in his life and work, some of the key components and concepts in his book, such as identity, community, CRT and hostile attribution bias, the state of society and some of the big issues of our day.
