Speaking with those who have done great things // 2014-06-12
The interview on today's show is but a portion of a long discussion recorded with Pete McCloskey.
The former Congressman is a singular figure in 20th century American politics. Though a Republican he was a leading anti-war figure in the Congress and a co-author of the Endangered Species Act. In 1972 he openly challenged the incumbent President - Richard Nixon - for the GOP nomination. He managed to get re-elected to Congress despite being in front of the popular opinions of the time.
History has vindicated his stands and we feel privileged to have been afforded the chance to speak with him. Fortunately we have at least another hour of material besides what airs today, and if we are lucky we may be able to speak to the Congressman again. What you hear today, and in future installments only scratches the surface of what episodes we might explore with this remarkable and principled political figure.
