Ben Shapiro, 33, is an Orthodox Jew, a father, and a UCLA and Harvard Law grad. Shapiro was a Breitbart editor and is now editor in chief of The Daily Wire, a website that includes his own podcast. Shapiro’s young conservative fans enjoy his skepticism toward the Republican Party and Donald Trump (he was an early Never Trumper), his irreverent yet intelligent tone, his references to both pop culture and philosophical books, and his lawyerly, facts-only dissection of current issues.
