Host David Jolly is joined by award-winning author, columnist, political analyst, filmmaker, and lecturer, Jonathan Alter. Jonathan has written best-selling books about three Presidents, and his latest, out this fall, is the first full-length biography of our 39th President, Jimmy Carter. They discuss his book and Carter’s character, which was much more complex than the affable, grandfatherly figure he is commonly portrayed as.
They also discuss Jonathan’s FDR biography, which is full of good lessons. So good in fact, that President-elect Biden has quoted it on the campaign trail and kept a copy on his desk during this year’s election.
