Why Subscribe to The Transom?

The Transom is a newsletter offering daily analysis of the most important stories in politics, culture, and foreign policy written and edited by me, Ben Domenech.

The newsletter features opinion pieces, content of interest from around the web, and transcribed interviews with newsmakers and writers from across the political spectrum. Paying subscribers never miss an edition, and you can also join our monthly Transom Book Club via Zoom, where we dig into a wide variety of books.

A little about me: I am the Editor at Large of The Spectator and a Fox News Contributor where I host “The Ben Domenech Podcast”.

I co-founded The Federalist and served as its publisher for a decade. I also co-founded the conservative group blog Redstate. I am a former speechwriter for HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson and Senator John Cornyn of Texas, and I served as a Fellow at The Manhattan Institute and Senior Fellow at The Heartland Institute. I’ve been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Politico, National Review, Commentary, Reason, The New York Post, and many other places. I live in Virginia with my wife and daughter.

For speaking inquiries, please reach out via the folks at United Talent.
