Rafi Schwartz

Rafi Schwartz is a contributing writer to Mic, where he focuses on politics, protest movements, and the weirder parts of the internet's underbelly. He was previously a senior writer with Splinter News, and the managing editor of Heeb Magazine. His work has appeared in GOOD, Rolling Stone, The Forward, and elsewhere. He is a co-owner of Discourse Blog, where he frequently complains about food and politics, and sends a weekly newsletter with whatever is on his mind that day. Rafi currently lives in the Twin Cities, where he does not bike, run, or take part in any team sports. He does have a variety of interests, hobbies, and passions, however. You can ask him about them at @TheJewishDream on Twitter, if you'd like. Or not. When in doubt, he'll have the soup.
