Senior Politics reporter, Rolling Stone Magazine; Political Author 

Asawin "Swin" Suebsaeng is a senior politics reporter at Rolling Stone magazine. He was previously a White House reporter for The Daily Beast, and prior to that, worked in the Mother Jones magazine's Washington, D.C., bureau covering the intersection of politics and pop culture.

Before that, he was a reporter at the Bangkok Post in Thailand, where he covered the summer of the Red Shirt crisis and military crackdown. He appears regularly on radio and TV, including on MSNBC, where he primarily discusses his reporting on the modern American right-wing, GOP, and Trumpism.

In February 2020, the Penguin Random House imprint of Viking published his book, which Swin co-authored with investigative reporter Lachlan Markay, Sinking in the Swamp: How Trump's Minions and Misfits Poisoned Washington, which Kirkus Reviews called "a dishy takedown of the mediocrities, charlatans, and grifters populating the corridors of power in D.C."

Swin and his wife — Reason magazine senior editor Elizabeth Nolan Brown — are lecturers and professional affiliates at the University of Cincinnati's journalism department.
