In an effort to bring a discussion to the forefront, this week’s guests initially set out to provide a resource for people to turn to and were stopped dead in their tracks. This week Jim welcomes back long time guest Mark Anthony and first-time guest Anthony Profeta to share their forum “Nobody is born a bigot”
Jim features a guest that you may not have heard of, but you certainly have heard. The six-string slinger of Savage Garden, Tal Bachman, Lifehouse, and Elvis Monroe, songwriter, and producer Ben Carey. Ben joins the show today to discuss life as a touring musician, the struggles of the lockdown environment, and his experience during the infamous Route 91 incident.
We have the special treat of a double guest show that features Brad Meltzer and Josh Mensch. However, they are not here to discuss what made Lincoln or Washington great (which they still so a little bit anyway) but rather to bring to light a forgotten tidbit of history. We all know the unfortunate demise that Lincoln met through the assassination at Ford’s theatre but this was not the first attempt on his life.
