Video: Steve Benson Interview

Pulitzer Prize award winning editorial cartoonist Steve Benson talks to the Freedom From Religion Foundation in this interview about his life and work recorded on September 19, 2019.

"Steve Benson was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his work with the Arizona Republic. He sketched cartoons for the paper for decades, and we view and discuss with him some of his choice creations. The freethinking Benson is ironically the grandson of Mormon President Ezra Taft Benson. 'My grandfather said, ‘Stephen, just go easy on the church,'' Benson recounts on the show. 'Oh wait a minute, folks! My grandfather is about to become president of the church, and God is concerned about cartoons that are being done?!'
