The Milt Rosenberg Show
Summary: The Milt Rosenberg Show is a daily public affairs program that features intelligent, enlivening and thought provoking discussions centered on the world of ideas.
Was the Arab Spring really surge of democracy that many in the media and government made it out to be? Not according to today's guest. Andrew McCarthy has written Spring Fever, a book that says for many who practice Islam, freedom simply doesn't have a place, and the values of the west are at odds with this worldview.
Our 30th President, Calvin Coolidge, is often listed by historians in the bottom quarter of Presidential rankings. Does he belong there? Amity Shlaes, the author of the excellent new biography Coolidge certainly doesn't believe so. We talk with Shlaes about her new book, the life and times of a severely misunderstood President, and Shlaes role in furthering the understanding of conservative economic policy. You can find the book on Amazon here.
What goes on in and around Chicago? We talk with one of the finest feature writers in the business, the Chicago Tribune's Ron Grossman. We talk about the quality of undergraduate education, the overrun of the academy by political correctness (including a story about one academics quest to question the sexuality of Sherlock and Holmes), and the political history of Chicago, among many other topics.
In our inaugural show, we talk with Mark Steyn, author of the book After America and a favorite guest of The Milt Rosenberg Show. We talk with Mark about the host of scandals plaguing the Obama administration, the Boston Bombing suspect, and the changing cultural face of America.
