J-Talks Live: New Yorker’s Susan B. Glasser on U.S. leadership + politics + the pandemic & protests


TORONTO, June 2, 2020 /CNW/ – Susan B. Glasser, who writes a weekly column about life in Trump’s America for The New Yorker, will be the featured guest on the final J-Talks Live webcast of the season. It takes place on Thursday, June 4 at 1 p.m. EDT.

Glasser’s award-winning career includes serving as editor-in-chief of Foreign Policy, founding editor of Politico Magazine and Moscow bureau chief at the Washington Post. She will share her perspective on COVID-19 leadership, Donald Trump’s response to the protests over race-related police brutality, the U.S. presidential election and how Canadians can make sense of the chaos across our border. 

“The polarized politics around the President already made Washington a challenging assignment for reporters,” says Anna Maria Tremonti, who hosts the J-Talks Live series and is also the host of More, the CBC podcast. “And now, the biggest issues roiling the U.S. — race, health, inequality — are converging in an election year in powerful ways. I’m looking forward to hearing Susan’s analysis of what is happening, and her insights into the long-term effect this multi-level crisis in the U.S. will have on its politics, its leadership and the rest of the world.”
