Introducing: The Kept Republic Podcast
Let’s go back to basics. Where did America come from? What people, ideas, principles, institutions have shaped this country? What do our founding documents mean? Where has America lived up to her potential? Where has she gone wrong? I’m Eric Dorman, and on The Kept Republic Podcast, we’ll be having these critical discussions with experts and writers and thinkers, and even with our fellow citizens.The show isn’t really about current events and it doesn’t take cues from who’s in the White House or sitting on the Supreme Court, or from America’s latest political controversy or scandal. Instead, it’s about the discussions that never die; our first principles.How do we keep the Republic?Please subscribe today.Find out more at keptrepublic.com.
