Episode 102 - Reagan Since the World's been Turning

    • History

This episode we’re tossing on our cowboy hats and riding horseback all the way from Sunset Boulevard to the White House. The first celebrity U S president, Ronald Wilson Reagan, marked a turning point in world history.  From the aggressive deregulation of Reaganomics, to the massive consequences of his aggressive foreign policy, Reagan’s influence on the world is undeniable.  Working as a  Military Filmmaker, Movie Star, Labour Organiser, Governor, and the President of the United States, Reagan’s career is an erratic one, full of all sorts of strange pivots and turns - including a walk across the aisle. A man of contradictions and controversy, revered and hated in equal measure - this is the story of Ronald Reagan.

Were joined by special guest Dr Ross Baker, distinguished professor of  Political Science at Rutgers University New Jersey
