This week, Dan and Eric have a wide-ranging conversation. They discuss their respective Passover weekends, Dan's spend in DC, Eric's on Long Island; David Remnick's piece on the osmotic relationship between Donald Trump and Bibi Netanyahu; Ben Taub's remarkable piece on a relationship formed in Guantanamo Bay (plus a lot more.) The two also revisit last week's conversation about Isaac Chotiner's New Yorker Interview with Brett Easton Ellis; discuss Catherine Lacey's Gogolian new short story and the New Yorker's history of eschewing 'writer-consciousness'; and Eric recaps D.T. Max's profile of playwright Lucas Hnath. That's a lot for one episode!
