As more and more of our institutions fall prey to the woke agenda, what exactly are conservatives trying to conserve?

Today's episode of The Kevin Roberts Show explores the demise of America’s cultural institutions, the importance of our philosophical roots, and the beginning of a “counter-revolutionary moment.”

Glenn Ellmers holds a Ph.D. in politics from Claremont Graduate University and has focused much of his work on considering the role of statesmanship; begging the question: “Is ‘conservatism’ enough?” A student of the late Harry V. Jaffa, Glenn explores these complex topics and more in the first comprehensive examination of his teacher’s vast body of work: The Soul of Politics: Harry V. Jaffa and the Fight for America.

Each episode of The Kevin Roberts Show is a weekly rallying cry for lovers of freedom everywhere, packed with Dr. Roberts’ analysis on the issues of the day and deep conversations with the movers and shakers of American politics and culture. And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation. 

As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.
