When it comes to foreign policy, America is no longer leading from a place of “peace through strength.” As today’s guest puts it: “We’re both speaking softly and carrying a small stick.”   

That needs to change.

In an era of great power conflict, Americans are looking for a Third Way between the failed establishment on both sides of the aisle. Elbridge Colby joins the show to discuss what a 21st-century American foreign policy should look like given the growing threat of China and the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, and how to rebuild our reputation amongst our allies.


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.
