It’s coming up on nearly 250 years since we began this American experiment, an experiment with high ideals. Recent events and decades simply underscore that we have a long, long way to go to meeting them. So in this Newsletter, I thought I’d incorporate some of what we have learned from some of our podcast…
Season 1 has been a great experience, thanks to all of our guests and listeners!
Because of these engaging conversations about our shared history, ideals, and citizen actions, we were delighted to engage with and interview Anna Laymon of America250, the congressionally chartered group leading a multi-year commemoration of the 250th anniversary of America, July 4, 2026. Their aim is to ignite our imaginations, elevate our diverse stories, inspire service in our communities, and demonstrate the lasting durability of the American experiment, involving as many Americans as possible from every background and every community. You can check it out at america250.org. Since we are always up for modifying the format and content of the podcast, please let us know your ideas by sending me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting me on LinkedIn.
