For today’s program, I thought we would focus on themes of Leadership. You will hear how this idea was flipped upside down by NPR story on Trump, song by REM and the twisted irony of it all.
Which leads to our first movie. Get Me Roger Stone. Stone's career is a window into a half century of politics that led to the greatest upset in political history. We follow this movie with a real gem, a hit on the Festival circuit, now currently in theaters. Leave No Trace, where a father does his best to guide his daughter, living in a beautiful nature reserve near Portland, Oregon. And we wrap up with another kind of Leader,
Bill Nye: Science Guy, as we see a man go from a science guru for kids to more of a science Statesman.
