Ezra Klein is a columnist at New York Times, Podcast host, The Ezra Klein Show and author of Why We’re Polarized. Using his trademark depth of policy knowledge and academic research, Klein gives audiences a systematic look at why American politics is so polarized, and what that polarization has done to electoral institutions, policymaking, and the media. As a Southern California native, Klein will reflect on how our local politics and challenges impact the rest of the country. Klein was the founder and editor-in-chief of Vox, the explanatory news platform. He was also a creator and executive producer of the Netflix show, “Explained.” He is also a columnist for Bloomberg News and MSNBC. In 2012, GQ named him to their 50 Most Powerful People in Washington list.
