Leslie Savan blogs for The Nation about media and politics. A three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist for her Village Voice column about advertising, Savan is the author of Slam Dunks and No-Brainers: Pop Language in Your Life, the Media, and, Like…Whatever and The Sponsored Life: Ads, TV, and American Culture. She has been widely published, including in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, New York, Mother Jones, and Huffington Post. She has appeared frequently on TV and radio, and is very happy to be a talking head in Helvetica, a film about the font.
