You may have never heard of him, but no historian has had a greater influence on modern America than Howard Zinn. His most popular work, A Peoples History of the United States, was brought into the cultural mainstream with Matt Damon's Oscar winning 1997 film Good Will Hunting. The book is a precursor to the 1619 Project - tracing the roots of America's sins and inequities to Christopher Columbus' 1492 voyage and the rise of capitalism. So for Columbus Day Weekend we invited Dr. Mary Grabar, a historian and author of "Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned A Generation Against America", to join us for an objective look at Zinn's perspective on American history, his motivations for attacking the USA and capitalism, and the ramifications of his influence on generations of academia.

Follow her on Twitter at @MaryGrabar.
Steven Crowder joins us to discuss the rally he's leading on Friday, October 2 outside the Michigan state capitol to pressure Gov. Gretchen Whitmer into releasing the data on the state's nursing home deaths. The COVID-19 death toll in all categories of long-term care facilities in Michigan remains a mystery. Although the state has reportedly been collecting data on coronavirus deaths since May 29, Michigan has not reported all of its data as other states have. Steven talks about this and much more, including how to grow the perfect cherry, making it in comedy, and the time he may have saved Ben Shapiro's life. Steven Crowder is the host of Louder With Crowder and the Change My Mind series. Follow him on Twitter at @scrowder.
For this special episode, Dan is highlighting a new bill he just introduced called the "Direct Primary Care for America Act." Over the past few years the concept of direct primary care has been adopted by doctors all across America with lots of success. The idea is simple: you should have an affordable monthly fee for a primary-care doctor, without extra charges for visits and without third-party insurance. You can find a doctor near you by simply going to a website and typing in your ZIP code. This new model makes health care costs more transparent and affordable, and strengthens the doctor-patient relationship. Joining us to discuss direct primary care are two doctors who have actually implemented the model in their practices - Dr. Glenn Davis and Dr. Geetinder Goyal - along with a returning guest and health care expert - Dr. Avik Roy. Visit my website http://crenshaw.house.gov to learn more about my new bill and stay tuned for exciting developments in what could become the future of American health care.
H.R. McMaster, retired Army Lieutenant General and former National Security Advisor, joins us for a look into the most critical foreign policy and national security challenges facing the United States today. What does America gain by maintaining a military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan? How do we handle the escalating tensions with Russia and China? General McMaster brings decades of experience on the geopolitical stage to answer these questions and much more. General McMaster is the author of the just released "Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World." He served in Cold War Europe and led the Eagle Troop of the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment during the first Gulf War. In 2004, he led the 3rd Armored Calvary in Tal Afar, Iraq, where he pioneered a new counter insurgency strategy. From February 2017 to April 2018, General McMaster served as National Security Advisor to the President. Follow him on Twitter at @LTGHRMcMaster.
Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon’s Second Congressional District joins us to talk about the real benefits of forest management to reduce the size, intensity, and carbon emissions from wildfires in the West. What are the left’s arguments against forest management? How have radical Democrat environmental policies disrupted a healthy forest ecosystem? What laws do we need to change to fix the failed forest policies that have led to disastrous forest fires? Congressman Greg Walden represents Oregon’s Second Congressional District. He is the Republican Leader of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has broad jurisdiction over health care, energy, environment, and telecommunications policy.

Roving journalist Michael Tracey joins us to discuss what he observed on his two month journey documenting the civil unrest across America.

Dr. Avik Roy joins us for a pragmatic look at America’s approach to the COVID-19 response thus far and how it compares to other countries which fared better or worse than us.

Dr. Avik Roy is the co-founder of The Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity – a non-partisan organization dedicated to considering the impact of public policies and proposed reforms on Americans with incomes or wealth below the U.S. median.

Dr. Bjorn Lomborg joins us to continue the conversation on rational environmentalism which we left off with Michael Shellenberger. What are the second order effects of climate change policies, like the ones we find in the Green New Deal, on poor communities and developing countries? How do these policies - counterintuitively - actually hurt the environment more than doing nothing? And what are the 21st century solutions humanity should pursue to propel everybody into safer, cleaner societies? Dr. Bjorn Lomborg is president of the Copenhagen Consensus Center and visiting professor at Copenhagen Business School. The Copenhagen Consensus Center is a think-tank that researches the smartest ways to do good. For this work, Lomborg was named one of TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world.

The show intro sounds a little too much like a ritualistic cult chant. Consider changing it up with a musical score. The

"justice is not coming" so cynical. there are things here that need to be said and acknowledged. but also things that are dead wrong and shortsighted. but what really bothers me is the tone of the conversation. i might call it the "insiders tone". it's characterized by the complete lack of push back, of productive opposition. so the " conversation" is an exercise in sycophancy, and upon distribution is little more than propaganda or a press release. note that there are no real "solutions" put forward, nor any discussion of the nature of the problem outside of a tightly defined playing field. conservatism is good. fine. everyone else is engaged in a "shakedown" . so there is no room for dissent. "we" are totally good. " they"are totally corrupt. its zero sum. its a recipe for domination, not development.

I commented earlier that I was looking forward to this - I was not disappointed. I'd like to thank both Rep. Crenshaw and Dr Weinstein. I am a devout Christian Conservative who finds Dr Weinstein's perspective fascinating and enlightening as I attempt to understand how and why more left-leaning individuals believe as they do. I am more often struck by how much we have in common than put-off by where we disagree.
