American politics today exists in a post-truth world. The line between the politics and the substance of our policy discussions has almost completely been erased. This newsletter is focused on bringing to you evidence-based political and policy analysis – and telling uncomfortable but necessary truths about our current political moment.

If you subscribe to Truth and Consequences you’ll get multiple columns a week from me on the latest doings in American politics and public policy with a healthy dose of snark and commentary on music, movies, and sports thrown into the mix.

Truth and Consequences will host weekly Q&A sessions with journalists, historians, and political pundits as well as weekly Zoom talks with some of the smartest observers of American politics.

A paid subscription to Truth and Consequences provides access to all the content on the site as well as the comment sections and open discussion threads. And you’ll be able to participate in bimonthly Zoom talks with me and any special guests I can convince to join me!
