JOSH BARRO — Host & Center
Josh is host of KCRW’s Left, Right & Center and co-host of the spin-off series LRC Presents: All The President’s Lawyers. He is New York Magazine’s business columnist and a contributor at MSNBC. Josh was a founding correspondent at The Upshot, the economics and data section of The New York Times, and Business Insider‘s senior editor and politics editor. Before entering journalism, he worked in policy research for think tanks and as a real-estate banker at Wells Fargo. He holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Harvard College.
ANA MARIE COX — Left
Ana Marie Cox hosts the WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE podcast from Crooked Media. Her writing has appeared in THE NEW REPUBLIC, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, THE WASHINGTON POST, and ESQUIRE, and her “Space the Nation” column, about the intersection of science fiction and politics, appears each week on Syfy.com.
RICH LOWRY — Right
As one of the most respected conservative voices, Rich Lowry brings his sharp analysis and well-‐formed opinions to the political discussion through his writing and commentary. Lowry became editor of National Review in 1999 when selected by William F. Buckley, Jr. to lead the magazine. Today, National Review remains a conservative guidepost, helping to bring to prominence rising conservative leaders and advance conservative policies. Lowry is a syndicated columnist and a political commentator with CNN. His insight and analysis can also be found in Politico where he writes a weekly column. Known for his skillful debating style, Lowry is a frequent guest on Meet the Press and This Week with George Stephanopoulos. He is the author of Lincoln Unbound, which follows Abraham Lincoln’s climb to the presidency and distills lessons from his ethic of relentless striving. Lowry’s book on Bill Clinton – Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years – was a New York Times bestseller.
