Our Jewish guest is Ben Ostrower, whose design firm created Bernie Sanders’ logo. He tells us why he always asks clients what car they see himself as, which 2016 campaign logo he dislikes the most, and how the Obama campaign catapulted candidate logos to the forefront of election-season consciousness.

Our Gentile of the Week is Chris Eigeman, who made his acting debut as preppy New York City teen Nick Smith in Whit Stillman’s 1990 film Metropolitan. He tells us about playing an Upper East Side WASP despite being from Denver, his shift from acting to directing, and his latest film project.
