"Bridging the Political Gap" originally was an 11 episode series on how to bridge the political divide our nation now faces. Based on lessons learned from the World War 2 Generation of leaders who created the American century. Over its multiple season run the Podcast has become a history show looking back at the last half of the 20th century for lessons in leadership to help us today. Currently the show is looking back at the life, career, and Administration of Richard Nixon, as part of a much larger review of the Vietnam War through Watergate. It was the most divisive time in modern American History and we hope to take lessons from it for today. Our show has also made the largest most extensive use of the secret White House tapes of both Lyndon Johnson, and Richard Nixon, ever assembled in one place, other than the National Archives, and the Nixontapes.org website of historian Luke Nichtor. We invite you to come along with us on a wild ride through the high points and low moments of modern American History, in an effort to show the citizens of today that we are an amazing and resilient nation.
