In this episode of the “Mean,” New York Times columnist Frank Bruni joins me to talk about the underrated value of public universities and community colleges. Author of the book, Where You Go Is Not Who’ll You Be, Frank breaks down for students and parents what he labels “college acceptance mania” in America. I also ask my favorite opinion writer about his perspectives on the Supreme Court decision on marriage equality, the 2016 presidential election and the actual art of writing. Plus, the former NYT food critic offers one of his top restaurant recommendations!
