The Man Who Chronicled the Abuses at Holmesburg Prison The Left - “So unless you are Seymour Hersh, who has The New York Times backing him, or some young activists or aspiring journalist who’s willing to work an issue, [thorny issues such as these medical experiments] can fall through the floorboards.” Erich J. Prince 8/11/2018

Turning the Page in Brazil: An Interview with Priscila Chammas The Right - “The vast majority of  political parties in Brazil have no ideology whatsoever.

What is Virtue? A Talk with Professor Christian B. Miller The Center - “I have no desire to be president for example.

Prince 8/8/2018
Civil Liberties in a Polarized Time: An Interview with Nadine Strossen The Left - “In Congress, no matter how strongly I agree with somebody on some issues, I’m going to strongly disagree on others.

What Feminism Means Today: Speaking with Dr. Christina Hoff Sommers The Center - “[Feminism today sometimes] sees the world as a zero-sum struggle between Venus and Mars.

Political Philosophy for 2018: Talking with Prof. Christopher Freiman The Right - “…Politicians are regular people who should not be expected to be more moral in their political lives than their economic lives. If we have this assumption that people in politics are no better than people in markets, this leads to a lot less confidence that political solutions will be any better than market solutions.” Nigel Thompson 7/9/2018
Has Modern Society Left Honor Behind? An Interview with Prof. Tamler Sommers The Center - “When we look back on honor cultures like the Mafia…They embrace values that are precisely what are lacking in our lives—like that fierce, passionate loyalty that Sonny has.

Sparing Women and Children from Violence: Speaking with Dr. Samantha Nutt The Center - “[People] want to give back, they want to help out, and the mistake is in presuming that the most effective and transparent way of helping is to do the work ourselves—to get on a plane to see and participate in it being done.” Erich J. Prince 7/4/2018
Lawyer, Photographer, and Activist Sara Bennett Talks Prison System and Life after Parole The Left - “…after you’ve been away for 25 or 30 years, the likelihood of your having a family is pretty slim.

Staying above Partisanship: An Interview with Joe Lieberman The Center - “The last four or five years I was in the Senate, there was simply no Democrat more conservative than any Republican and no Republican more liberal than any Democrat.

Being a Red State Democrat: An Interview with Jim Martin The Left - “True patriotism is the guy, man or woman, who shows up at the post office every day to be a postal clerk… I dislike and disapprove of those people who wrap themselves in the flag claiming to be patriots when they’ve…done nothing to help move this country forward.” Erich J. Prince 6/28/2018
Politician Profile: An Interview with Lincoln Chafee The Left - “There are more wedge issues that divert our attention from the real issues. That’s what I found during my time in the Senate…But the Republicans wanted to send their Republican candidates out to campaign about gay marriage and abortion and flag burning. It’s all about control of the Senate.” Erich J. Prince 6/25/2018

Interview: Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographer of Seton Hall Dorm Fire The Center - “It was critically important to me then, and it’s still critically important to me now that I do not take advantage of the subject of any photograph…for my benefits or for my agenda. We saw some really tough things, and it could have become gratuitous.” Erich J. Prince 6/14/2018
