Michael Hobbes is a Seattle-based journalist, writer, and supremely-talented untangler of our culture’s messiest cultural hairballs. He is the other half (the first being Sarah Marshall, who did this column last week) of the most wonderful You’re Wrong About, a podcast that absorbs every superlative I throw its way, and leaves me wanting to praise it still more. Let’s just say it’s really good and you should listen to it. Michael’s bylines include Slate, NPR, Pacific Standard, The New Republic, and his primary home for long-form writing, The Huffington Post. An enjoyable, and enlightening, afternoon can be spent perusing his published articles.
