Pulitzer-prize-winning political cartoonist Mike Luckovich talks cartooning in the age of Trump

Today’s guest is double Pulitzer-prize-winning political cartoonist Mike Luckovich, whose hilarious and biting political criticism has been a staple at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution since 1989. Mike talks to us about politics today, his love of Trump (kidding – he loathes Trump), how political cartooning works as a profession, whether it’s harder to be in the political cartoon business in an age when people are more sensitive about stereotypes, and whether there’s a future for it in the new world order of online media. It was a really fun and interesting interview about a topic I didn’t know much about — I’ve never met a political cartoonist! — so I think you’ll enjoy this.
