    David Frum is a writer at The Atlantic and the author of the 2018 New York Times bestseller, TRUMPOCRACY: The Corruption of the American Republic, his ninth book. In 2001-2002, he served as special assistant and speechwriter to President George W. Bush during and after the 9/11 attacks on the United States. Frum is a recognized intellectual leader of the American conservative movement. His first book, DEAD RIGHT, was praised by William F. Buckley in 1994 as "the most refreshing ideological experience in a generation" and by Frank Rich in the New York Times as "the smartest book written from the inside about the American conservative moment." His memoir of his service in the Bush White House, THE RIGHT MAN, was a New York Times bestseller in 2003. Frum has served as a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, as a trustee of the Republican Jewish Coalition, and as chairman of the board of trustees of Policy Exchange, the leading center-right think tank in the United Kingdom. A native of Canada, he was a driving force in the "Winds of Change" movement that reunited that country's splintered Conservative party in the early 2000s. In 2009-2012, Frum created and edited the FrumForum group website devoted to the modernization of the Republican party. More than a dozen young writers who started their careers on Frum's site have gone on to success in politics and journalism. Frum was one of the first and foremost conservative Republicans to sound the alarm about the challenge posed by the Trump presidency to US global leadership, open international trade, and democratic institutions. His prophetic 2017 cover story in the Atlantic, "How to Build an Autocracy," has been one of the most cited of the Trump years. Frum appears frequently on CNN, MSNBC, and the Australian, British, and Canadian Broadcasting Corporations. A profile in Esquire in December 2017 described Frum as "first among equals" in the conservative anti-Trump movement. Frum earned a BA and MA in history at Yale, then a JD at Harvard, where he served as president of the Harvard chapter of the Federalist society. He taught history Yale in 1986-87. Frum is now at work on his tenth book, about how to renew American world leadership after Trump. Frum is married to Danielle Crittenden Frum, a journalist, author, and podcaster. They have three children and live in Washington DC and Wellington, Ontario

    Sara Kamali, PhD is a holistic justice activist and a scholar of systemic inequities, White nationalism, and militant Islamism. Her writings and activism address how interlocking institutions of power oppress the many while maintaining systems of privilege for a select few. 
    Dr. Kamali is also the author of Homegrown Hate: Why White Nationalists and Militant Islamists Are Waging War against the United States published by University of California Press. In the first book to directly compare White nationalists and militant Islamists in the United States, Dr. Kamali examines their histories and networks as well as their self-described beliefs, grievances, and rationales for violence.
    She also calls for changing the current counterterrorism paradigm in the United States to one based on what she defines as “holistic justice” in order to effectively counter what is now the greatest terrorist threat faced by the United States and by many countries around the world.
    She also writes two monthly series, Activating Justice and Jessie Spano is in the Wake. The first focuses on the work of everyday heroes working to make their communities more equitable and is in an interview format. The second applies the lessons learned from Jessie Spano's time at the fictional Bayside High as an ally and activist to examine some of the same challenges we face in the real world today.   
    Dr. Kamali is passionate about striving against oppression in all forms at the axis of systemic racism, particularly ableism, the opportunity gap within education, and food and housing insecurity.

Keep On Keepin on, Pete!

I’ve been listening to Pete since his XM days first on POTUS then on Insight, I believe. I’ve always appreciated his approach to interviews, which is respectful, curious, and thoughtful. He knows what all smart people do, which is that he doesn’t know everything. Great guests, legit theme song, but Keith sometimes screws up some aspect of the production…

Keep on going, Pete! I’m also a 45 year old dad of two girls, so seeing you navigate corporate job loss and to rebound so spectacularly is impressive and inspiring. Your seem like a genuinely good guy and someone who really cares about the issues and about presenting informed experts rather than attempting to pontificate about a wide array of subjects on your own. You’re the only podcast I pay for, and no regrets here.

Love this podcast

I really enjoy the experts and that Pete is not afraid to ask questions, change his mind as he grows. He has helped me have better more informed conversations. And he’s funny!

Dear reader, if you’ve come to the point where you are reading reviews before listening, then take heed: this is more than just a great podcast. Pete’s show brings you (1) a daily rundown of US/world events with amusing and meaningful commentary/pertinent audio; (2) timely/relevant discussions with preeminent journalists, scientists, artists, comedians, actors, etc.; and (3) a welcoming and active community of listeners. You’ll get news, current events, self-improvement, parenting advice, humor, and a whole host of other great topics if you listen to this podcast. So give it a shot, and once you’re hooked—as you inevitably will be—subscribe to Pete’s Patreon. You’ll not only support independent media, but also, you’ll help subsidize Pete’s crippling financial dependency on sunscreen and razors (he’s bald as a mole rat and spends a lot of time outside).
