If the Left had their way, Americans would replace moms, dads, and community with government. Brad Wilcox joins Heritage President Kevin Roberts to refute the Left and cultural elites’ misguided skepticism about the role of the family in American society and highlight ways to strengthen future generations with American traditions.

Brad Wilcox has committed his career to understanding the causes and consequences of family change in the United States and around the globe. His research has focused on how marriage, parenthood, and religion influence societies and individuals’ quality of life. Wilcox has been recognized for his work by the American Sociological Association Religion Section and his research has been featured in outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Atlantic.


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.
