Join veteran muckraker Barbara Ehrenreich and culture critic Jia Tolentino in a discussion about economic inequality in the wake of Covid-19.

As states begin to reopen—sans adequate testing or PPE—it is clear how dispensable our government thinks “essential” workers really are. CEOs manage FORTUNE 500 companies from palatial homes in the Hamptons while “hero” workers risk their health to push the gears of capitalism back to life.

A self-proclaimed "myth buster by trade," Barbara Ehrenreich has covered an extensive range of topics as a journalist and political activist. Had I Known has been hailed as Ehrenreich’s most impactful collection of essays from her decades’ worth of activist journalism, and highlights the brilliance, social consciousness, and wry wit of one of our country's most incisive thinkers.

Ehrenreich is joined by the New Yorker’s cultural critic Jia Tolentino, author of the bestselling essay collection Trick Mirror. Tolentino is a former contributing editor at The Hairpin and former deputy editor at Jezebel. Her work has appeared in The New York Times MagazineGrantlandPitchfork, and Time, among others.
