Ep. 306 – PJ O’Rourke: The Celebrity President

Everyone’s favorite topic… Trump. I interviewed PJ O’Rourke back in May. But today (the day this show releases) is pretty much the one year anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration. And so I explore alternate realities with PJ, a 2x New York Times bestselling author, journalist, Irish Catholic hippie and a world of other contradictions.

  • QUESTION:  “What would the country be like if all the First Ladies ran the country?”
  • ANSWER: “We’re out of slavery in 1800 because Sally Hemings would’ve abolished it.”

 

(That’s a chapter in his book. PJ tells you how the world would be different. He gives you scenarios to dream up a new world.)

He also asks you to vote differently... Hypothetically, who would you vote for if you picked the president based on who you’d go on a road trip with.

Our conversation makes you think. And laugh. And wonder. Which are the three keys to a free mind.
