America seems to be deeply divided, along multiple fault lines. Emotions are running very high — over racial issues, economic differences, sexual mores, partisan politics, religious beliefs, and generational gaps. It feels chaotic – it feels dangerous. Is there some way to make sense of it all? We’re going to talk about all of it, here on the American Culture Podcast.



Who we are as a country? What does it means to be an American? Where have we been? and Where are we going? To ask these important questions is to ask about our culture. What is our culture now? how is it changing? and how should it change? Who are we as a people? Who do we aspire to be as a nation? If we can honestly grapple with these questions, and maybe, hopefully, reach some sort of consensus, we stand a much better chance of putting all those other divisive issues into proper perspective, and context, and possibly achieving a better level of mutual understanding over them.



Culture, at its core, means the shared beliefs, assumptions, norms and values that are inherited, transmitted, and reinforced as a community. It is our shared system of beliefs that help us decide how to behave, as an individual, or as a group.



To bring it closer to home: It is what we teach our children. What do we teach our children about what it means to be an American, what it means to be a good citizen, a good person?



I hope you’ll join us!

    Not My Prime Minister, Safe Spaces for Women, and Impeachment (Episode 11)

    Not My Prime Minister, Safe Spaces for Women, and Impeachment (Episode 11)

    Happy New Year! In this episode of the American Culture Podcast we talk about (1) the dumbing down of the American high school student via the Common Core; (2) British protesters who don’t understand what an election is; (3) Women who want men to respect their sanctuaries; and (4) My brief thoughts on the impeachment of Donald Trump.







    One important program note that I want to mention – the American Culture Podcast is now being carried on both Spotify and on iHeartRadio, which is huge.  Those two platforms have really dived into the podcasting market to compete with Apple Podcasts and Google Play.  But the bottom line is that getting added to those sites greatly expands our reach, and also gives our listeners (and potential listeners) more options and more ways to find us.







    Also, a reminder that even when I’m not recording podcast episodes, I am still active on the Facebook page (Facebook.com/AmericanCulturePodcast) and the Twitter account (@AmCulturePod).  So I hope you’ll follow us on our social media accounts to get much more of the type of content I share on the podcast. And I hope you’ll tell your Facebook and Twitter friends about us, so we can increase our online footprint and spread the word.

The topics include (1) Fun with Boycotts; (2) The Democrats’ masks are slipping; (3) Jussie Smollett may be going to prison; (4) An update on President Trump’s southern wall; and (5) are we about to finally get a collusion conclusion? I am so glad you have taken the time to join us!

    The Racist NY Times, DiFi’s Chi Spy, Everyone is a Nazi (Episode 7)

    How racist is the New York Times? Have we finally come to the point where everyone is a Nazi? Was Dianne Feinstein a witting, or an unwitting, colluder with communist China for over 20 years? Has Donald Trump already won the dreaded trade war with Europe, without firing a shot? Is there any aspect of your life that Left does not want to control?  We talk about all that, and more, here on the American Culture Podcast.
