Season 6, Episode 1: The Rick Wilson
We kick off Season 6 with longtime political strategist and author Rick Wilson. Wilson is a co-founder of The Lincoln Project, a PAC dedicated to “defeating Trumpism.” Wilson WAS a Republican until Donald Trump ascended to the presidency — he became an independent in 2017.
Hear Rick’s take on the populist movement throughout the country, especially in the Rust Belt and Appalachia.
Wilson is the author of the New York Times bestseller, “Everything Trump Touches Dies.”
Carmen Gentile has worked for The New York Times and CBS News, among others. His book, “Blindsided by the Taliban,” documents his life as a war reporter and the aftermath of his brush with death after being shot with a rocket-propelled grenade while embedded with U.S. Army forces in Afghanistan. He is a founder and editor-at-large of Postindustrial Media.
