At the Podium

Described in The New York Times as a “principled gladiator,” Ben Shapiro has emerged as one of the leading voices of millennial conservatism. Shapiro deftly critiques big government, exposes liberal bias, and makes the case for conservatism to audiences around the country. His appearances at venues around the country have energized a fan base alienated not only from mainstream liberal culture, but also from the polemical online trolling and often racially-motivated hatred of the radical right. As a result, “The Ben Shapiro Show” has become the fastest-growing conservative podcast in the country, with 15 million monthly downloads and listeners across the political spectrum who value his honest brokering of viewpoints and policies. His social media following across Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram also numbers in the millions.

Shapiro’s approach to facilitating debate relies less on flashy provocations and more on carefully articulated philosophy and lawyerly dissections of talking points that manage to simultaneously entertain and engage rapt audiences. His scorching-yet-measured condemnations of an overarching societal discourse—which he and many contemporaries see as political correctness run amok—have endeared him to an audience traditionally under-served in mainstream conservative media outlets such as Fox News: those under the age of 40, who comprise 70% of his show’s audience.

A passionate defender of religious liberty and traditional values, Shapiro doggedly straddles the line between the old guard, sensationalist conservative media and the belligerent radical fringe, emerging as the thought leader of an active, fresh-faced contingent of young conservatives.

About Ben Shapiro

Ben Shapiro is editor-in-chief of, host of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” the top conservative podcast in the nation and syndicated radio show in the top ten markets, and a leading conservative speaker on college campuses, consistently defending free speech and open debate. Shapiro is the author of seven books, including The New York Times best-seller, Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America. Shapiro is also a nationally syndicated columnist since age 17, and a graduate of UCLA and Harvard Law School. The Washington Post calls Shapiro “a foe of extraordinary polemical agility,” and The New York Times calls him “the cool kid’s philosopher.” Rush Limbaugh says Shapiro isn’t just “content to have people be dazzled by his brilliance; he actually goes out and confronts and tries to persuade, mobilize, motivate people.” Glenn Beck calls Shapiro a “warrior for conservatism, against those who use fear and intimidation to stifle honest debate. I’ve never known him to back down from a fight.”
