Andrea Bernstein, "American Oligarchs", with Franklin Foer at Politics and Prose.

In her riveting exposé, Bernstein traces the rise of the Trump and Kushner families from their arrival as immigrants to the U.S. during the Gilded Age to their current position atop the oligarchy. Along the way she also illuminates the system they were able to work to their advantage. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and more than 100,000 pages of documents—many previously unseen—Bernstein shows how both families built fortunes from government money intended to help the middle class, something they got away with by blurring lines between public and private interests and leveraging their growing political power. Bernstein, the Peabody and duPont-Columbia Award-winning cohost of the WNYC/ProPublica podcast Trump, Inc., is in conversation with Franklin Foer, a staff writer for The Atlantic.


Andrea Bernstein is the Peabody Award–winning cohost of the acclaimed WNYC/ProPublica podcast Trump, Inc., which won the prestigious 2019 Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University award. In addition to broadcast appearances on outlets including PBS NewsHour, CNN, and Fresh Air, her work has appeared in The New Yorker, the New York Times, the Washington Post, New York, and on NPR.
