New York Times’ Ross Douthat on the state of American politics

This week’s guest is Ross Douthat, opinion columnist for the New York Times and author of several books on various topics including religion, American decadence, and his experience with chronic Lyme Disease.

In this conversation, we cover the change of conservatism and economic interests over the past few decades, and how Trumpism affected the interests of bi-partisan politics. Ross will be joining the University of Montana community as a President’s Lecture Series speaker on March 2. He talk is titled “How Reaganism Became Trumpism” and we’re excited today to get a preview of that talk and explore some of Ross’s other areas of expertise and interest.
