Win Every Argument shows how anyone can communicate with confidence, rise above the tit for tats on social media, and triumph in a successful and productive debate in the real world. Whether you are making a presentation at work or debating current political issues with a friend, Mehdi Hasan will teach you how to sharpen your speaking skills to make the winning case.

Mehdi Hasan is an award-winning British-American journalist. He is the host of The Mehdi Hasan Show on MSNBC and NBC’s streaming channel Peacock. Hasan is a former columnist and podcaster at The Intercept and a former presenter on Al Jazeera English, and his op-eds have also appeared in the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Hasan will be in conversation with Jen Psaki, who has been called “one of the best press secretaries ever” - a fitting accolade given that her tenure as the White House Press Secretary covered one of the most complex periods in modern presidential history. Prior to her time in the Biden White House, Psaki was a long-time advisor to President Barack Obama. She served as a traveling press secretary on his first long-shot campaign, and later served as the White House Communications Director for the final years of the Obama presidency. Psaki also served as the administration’s public face on the global stage during her tenure as the State Department Spokesperson, traveling the world with Secretary of State John Kerry. She is a former CNN political commentator and former Vice President of Communications and Strategy at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. This fall, Psaki will join MSNBC where she will host a new streaming show that is slated to debut in early 2023.
