New Video: Why There’s No Such Thing as a Good Billionaire
October 14, 2022

I just released a new video on YouTube, in which I explain how the Patagonia dude avoided paying billions in taxes, why allowing billionaires to hoard power is terrible for the planet, and how the wealthy use their money to buy the public’s love. Take a watch!

I Wrote About the LA Marathon for Defector
May 20, 2022

I was honored to write a piece for Defector, my favorite blog, about running the Los Angeles Marathon, my personal catharsis, and how former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt ruined it for everyone in the name of profit:

So why on Earth would the LA Marathon opt to dismember its own course, turning what could be a world-class civic event into a revolting slog through a hilly office park, when all they saved was a few extra bucks? I propose that it’s the same reason a baseball owner cuts payroll instead of investing in players who could bring his team a winning record, making it beloved in the minds of its fans, and lifting the spirits of an entire city. And it’s the same reason the politicians who control the LA Metro system voted to cut bus service, when expanding public transportation for the working class would be the single most cost-effective way to expand the city’s economy and achieve its climate goals. The billionaires and elected officials who run our vital institutions don’t care that investments, maintenance, and improvements would benefit everyone, themselves included. Instead, they’d rather cut costs and maximize short-term profit at our expense. Why would they do anything else? They’re making money, and that means they’re right.

I couldn’t be more thrilled that The G Word is finally streaming on Netflix.

I fly through a hurricane with the Air Force’s Hurricane Hunters, pull back the curtain on where our meat comes from, and meet some truly inspiring citizens who are changing their city government for the better.

I Spoke Before the FTC and DOJ About Harmful Media Mergers
April 28, 2022

This week I spoke before FTC Chair Lina Khan and Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust Jonathan Kanter about how corporate mergers are devastating working conditions, access to diverse voices, and artistic freedom in media. This is my full statement. It’s not every day that you’re invited to present a case like this to the exact government officials who are empowered to do something about it. It was, honestly, the highlight of my career so far. My deepest thanks to Chair Khan, AAG Kanter, and the Writers Guild of America West for the opportunity.
