Doing Vice with Reihan Salam

Reihan Salam is a great interviewer, even when he’s stuck with me as a subject.

Your mileage may vary, but this seems to me like a very sensible conversation, at least on Reihan’s side. A good interviewer is hard to find.

  1. Fascinating conversation. My only criticism would be to never do an hour long interview without a pitcher of water available. It looked to me like you really needed it at times. Thanks for slugging through it!
