WHY A PODCAST?
I started the What’s America’s Purpose podcast to connect with and elevate leaders whose work is guided by American ideals, science, reason and the conviction that citizen action is America’s best means to achieving a sustainable society at home and abroad. Please join me in this conversation by sharing your take on What’s America’s Purpose on the contacts page. You can also give me your ideas on how we develop venues to expand this conversation to engage more citizens in translating American ideals into policies and practices that enable all Americans to thrive in the 21st century. Maybe by doing more of this work together, we will have lots of additional progress to celebrate on July 4, 2026, the 250th Anniversary of our Declaration of Independence.
