The Heartland Institute was honored this week to host author and scholar Charles C. Johnson for a luncheon event in Chicago to talk about his book Why Coolidge Matters: Leadership Lessons from America’s Most Underrated President.
The video of Johnson’s presentation will be posted here soon. But to whet your appetite, listen in the player above to Chuck talk with me about the life, philosophies and virtues of one of America’s most underrated presidents, John Calvin Coolidge, Jr. You’ll learn a lot about the man, like I did.
We recorded this podcast shortly after his presentation in Heartland’s library. Download the podcast to your computer here.
