Josh Levin is the national editor at Slate. He is the host of the podcast Hang Up and Listen and the author of The Queen: The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth. “I think it’s a strength to make a thing, one that people might have thought was familiar, feel strange. And reminding people —in general, in life—that you don’t really know as much as you think you know. I think that carries over into any kind of storytelling.” Thanks to Mailchimp, Squarespace, and Pitt Writers for sponsoring this week's episode. @josh_levin Levin on Longform [01:48] The Queen: The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth (Little, Brown and Company • 2019) [01:52] “The Welfare Queen” (Slate • 2013) [02:47] The Mastermind: Drugs.
