Steven McGregor, co-author with Brendan Simms of The Silver Waterfall: How America Won the War in the Pacific at Midway, joins The Realignment to discuss how the lessons of the U.S. victory in the Pacific apply to today, how the Battle of Midway revealed the country's fundamental strengths, the state of naval readiness, and the new challenge to the status quo in the Asia-Pacific region.

Saagar and Marshall reflect on this week's episodes with a16z's Marc Andreessen and Katherine Boyle and discuss how last week's Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v.

261 | Katherine Boyle: Getting Serious About American Dynamism
Katherine Boyle, general partner at a16z and co-lead of the firm's American Dynamism practice, joins The Realignment to discuss how the frame of American Dynamism as a response to technological and societal stagnation, her optimism about the United States, and why the ability to "build," hold oneself accountable, and deliver results will be increasingly prized in founders and politicians alike.

Love the podcast I’ve been a listener for a while keep up the great work! Loved your latest interview with Peter Zeihan he was an excellent guest!
Marshall star in making
Great job by Marshall standing his ground today interviewing Ian Bremmer who really comes across as a bully from the Right. Interrupts Ian seamlessly to continue the conversation intelligently. Breadth of knowledge is admirable. Thanks for your work
Marshall in particular is a very, very strong interviewer. Super relevant topics and much needed even handedness and thoughtfulness.
