Molly and John Knefel are siblings who began their career in comedy but has since taken a turn in the political route. The two combined have written for the likes of Rolling Stone, The Nation, Salon, The New Inquiry, Feministing and more.

Molly, who is also an after-school drama teacher, focuses on education, social justice, criminal justice, gender, and feminism. While John has written about international conflict, political corruption and social justice.
