Mary Trump does an interesting, fun podcast that is great to listen to while you’re driving or doing something else. As a professional psychologist and niece of DJT she has a unique perspective on how things work. Her 2020 book Too Much and Never Enough, sold nearly one million copies on the day of its release.
“In the aftermath of Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter and the attack on Paul Pelosi, Mary Trump rallies Wajahat Ali, Jen Taub, Brian Karem, Kurt Bardella, Cliff Schechter, and Dahlia Lithwick to fight back.
