On this week’s Al Franken podcast, the guest is Michael Lewis (author of Moneyball, The Big Short, The Blind Side, and Liar’s Poker). In his most-recent book, The Fifth Risk, Franken notes that that “Lewis portrayed Donald Trump as a man totally ignorant of and disinterested in the actually functioning of the federal government. The book’s title refers to the potential catastrophe that an administration fails to plan for and prevent. Today, he talks about how Trump’s handling of COVID-19 “has proven his book tragically prophetic. This is a follow-up, of sorts to his earlier interview with Franken when the book was released, and the two had a fascinating conversation.
