Dylan Marron takes complicated social issues and finds accessible ways to talk about them through interviews, short-form videos and satire.

Why you should listen

Dylan Marron is an award-winning writer and producer. He is the host of two TED Audio Collective podcasts: The Redemption of Jar Jar Binks and Conversations with People Who Hate Me, the latter of which saw him call up and connect with authors of negative internet comments. His book of the same name was released in 2022 by Atria, a division of Simon & Schuster, and was hailed by The Associated Press as "a fascinating meditation on human connection and on finding common ground with people you never thought possible." He recently wrote on the third season of Ted Lasso.
