    Ira Shapiro

    Ira Shapiro

    Our guest on the program is former trade ambassador and best selling author, Ira Shapiro! Adam and Ira discuss his new book, "The Betrayal: How Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans Abandoned America". The Founding Fathers gave the U.S. Senate many functions, but it had one fundamental responsibility—its raison d’etre: to provide the check against a dangerous president who threatened our democracy. Two hundred and thirty years later, when Donald Trump, a potential authoritarian, finally reached the White House, the Senate should have served as both America’s first and last lines of defense. Instead, we had the nightmare scenario: today’s Senate, reduced through a long period of decline to a hyper-partisan, gridlocked shadow of its former self, was unable to meet its fundamental responsibility.

One of the best podcasts available

I thoroughly enjoy this podcast. The range of guests and topics all work really well thanks to Adam’s skill at being an engaging host. A weekly must listen!

Duke Loves Rasslin ,

Solid

Foundation Radio 100% is as solid as it comes for top notch interviews that actually matter. Instead of hearing the same old same old you hear elsewhere, Adam goes out of his way to research and find something new to talk about. Highly Recommended!
