About Institutionalized

Charles Fain Lehman & Aaron Sibarium, two friends and DC-based reporters who spend a lot of time wondering: are our institutions failing? This podcast is their effort to have these discussions in public, with some of the smartest people we know. Using their experience as reporters, this podcast discusses how our problems come down to how our institutions—our colleges, our businesses, our government, our media—function, or don’t.
