In February she published an article in the New Yorker on her observation of the Oversight Board formation. This article was the focus of a New Yorker Radio Hour with David Remnick, a Radiolab podcast, and The Weeds Podcast with Matt Yglesias. She also appeared on CBS Saturday Morning and in a CNN/Vox documentary on social media’s rise.

In March, she, along with former Editor-in-Chief of the Guardian Alan Rusbridger gave official witness testimony to the UK’s House of Lords.

In April, she was named a non-resident Fellow at the Brookings Institute.

Since the start of the pandemic, she has co-hosted a daily hour-long live video show with Ben Wittes, Editor in Chief of Lawfare. Guests have included Jim Comey, Chuck Rosenberg, John McWhorter, Kara Swisher, Dahlia Lithwick, Whit Stillman, Rep. Tom Malinowski, Preet Bharara, and SJU Law’s own John Barrett and Jeremy Sheff. The show will soon mark its 400th episode.
