244 years ago we began this American experiment with high ideals. Recent events and decades simply underscore that we have a long, long way to go to meeting them. So in this Newsletter, I thought I’d incorporate some of what we have learned from some of our podcast guests about the meaning of American ideals…
Newsletter #3: Stay tuned for the What’s America’s Purpose Season 1 compilation show coming out soon! Season 1 has been a great experience, thanks to all of our guests and listeners. Because of these engaging conversations about our shared history, ideals, and citizen actions, we are delighted to let you know that we will begin a new podcast season later this year in cooperation with America250. Congressionally chartered America250 is leading a multi-year commemoration of the 250th anniversary of America, July 4, 2026. The aim is to ignite our imaginations, elevate our diverse stories, inspire service in our communities, and demonstrate the lasting durability of the American experiment, involving as many Americans as possible from every background and every community. You can check it out at america250.org. We will begin Season 2 with an interview of America250’s Vice President Keri Potts. Since we are always up for modifying the format and content of the podcast, please let us know your ideas by sending me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting me on LinkedIn.
