The Historian Teaching Your Kids to Hate America: The Truth About Howard Zinn, with Dr. Mary Grabar
You may have never heard of him, but no historian has had a greater influence on modern America than Howard Zinn. His most popular work, A Peoples History of the United States, was brought into the cultural mainstream with Matt Damon's Oscar winning 1997 film Good Will Hunting. The book is a precursor to the 1619 Project - tracing the roots of America's sins and inequities to Christopher Columbus' 1492 voyage and the rise of capitalism.
So for Columbus Day Weekend we invited Dr. Mary Grabar, a historian and author of "Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned A Generation Against America", to join us for an objective look at Zinn's perspective on American history, his motivations for attacking the USA and capitalism, and the ramifications of his influence on generations of academia.
Dr. Mary Grabar is an author and a resident fellow at the The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization. She is also the founder of the Dissident Prof Education Project. Follow her on Twitter at @MaryGrabar.
"How Many Seniors?" Steven Crowder on the Michigan Rally to Demand Accountability
Steven Crowder joins us to discuss the rally he's leading on Friday, October 2 outside the Michigan state capitol to pressure Gov. Gretchen Whitmer into releasing the data on the state's nursing home deaths. The COVID-19 death toll in all categories of long-term care facilities in Michigan remains a mystery. Although the state has reportedly been collecting data on coronavirus deaths since May 29, Michigan has not reported all of its data as other states have. Steven talks about this and much more, including how to grow the perfect cherry, making it in comedy, and the time he may have saved Ben Shapiro's life.
Steven Crowder is the host of Louder With Crowder and the Change My Mind series. Follow him on Twitter at @scrowder.
How Direct Primary Care Could Change The World of Health Care, with Dr. Glenn Davis, Dr. Geetinder Goyal, & Dr. Avik Roy
For this special episode, Dan is highlighting a new bill he just introduced called the "Direct Primary Care for America Act." Over the past few years the concept of direct primary care has been adopted by doctors all across America with lots of success. The idea is simple: you should have an affordable monthly fee for a primary-care doctor, without extra charges for visits and without third-party insurance. You can find a doctor near you by simply going to a website and typing in your ZIP code. This new model makes health care costs more transparent and affordable, and strengthens the doctor-patient relationship.
Joining us to discuss direct primary care are two doctors who have actually implemented the model in their practices - Dr. Glenn Davis and Dr. Geetinder Goyal - along with a returning guest and health care expert - Dr. Avik Roy.
Visit my website http://crenshaw.house.gov to learn more about my new bill and stay tuned for exciting developments in what could become the future of American health care.
