Mitch has written on everything from the war on witches to the secret life of Ronald Reagan for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Salon, Time.com, and Politico.

Mitch has discussed alternative spirituality on CBS Sunday Morning, Dateline NBC, NPR’S All Things Considered, CNN, and throughout the national media. He received the 2019 Walden Award for Interfaith/Intercultural Understanding. The Chinese government has censored his work.
