David McCullough on the Pioneers Who Defined America
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough discusses his latest book The Pioneers, how it fulfilled his lifelong dream to write a nonfiction version of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, and why he wants his book to serve as reminder of fundamental American values. He tells the story of the New England minister who played an instrumental role in the creation of the Ohio Settlement, how he fought to outlaw slavery in the territory, and how his son carried on his fight for abolition a few years later. He talks about the wealthy Irish couple who built a paradise on an island in the Ohio River and how they lost everything when they became embroiled in the Aaron Burr treason scandal. McCullough reveals what he’s learned in his 50 plus years of studying history, the importance of hindsight, and why historical figures feel like old friends.

Aaron Rodgers won't stop being good and Skip Bayless is making a lot of sense. Jason Witten has malfunctioned and we're concerned. Baseball playoffs are heating up and some of the Dodgers aren't even trying. A couple NBA over/unders that are guaranteed winners and a mini season preview. Hot Seat/Cool Throne. Bill Burr joins the show to talk about his upcoming show at MSG, why we care too much about sports, his favorite College venues across the country, why we've all been the guy he witnessed getting kicked out of bar Sunday for being angry at the Football game, and some conspiracy theories that only the wokest can understand. Hmmm for Coach K and Zion Williamson, Witch Hunt are the Astros cheating. Embrace Debate is Nick Bosa a Quitter and Guys on Chicks.
