About this Podcast
Through this lens, you'll hear the stories of death penalty advocates, family feuds, making peace with the planet, and more.
With Friends Like These looks at our polarized America and explores forgiveness and reconciliation in all its forms. What does it mean to make things right? Who deserves to be forgiven? Through this lens, you’ll hear the stories of death penalty advocates, family feuds, making peace with the planet, and more.
Host Ana Marie Cox has her own story about trying to be a better person. She was Wonkette — a sarcastic, foul-mouthed, hard-charging blogger — and is now a progressive Christian and advocate for mental health and recovery. Her interviews with figures like Ibram X. Kendi and Joaquin Castro are intimate and frank; she highlights those on the front lines of social justice. And she never forgets to remind listeners that part of making the world a better place is making sure you’re ok, too.
