The state of conservatism at home and abroad is under attack with little consensus on ways to advance our ideas and objectives. Still, conservatives remain a powerful voice both in Washington D.C., and across the United States.

Former Heritage President Dr. Ed Feulner joins Kevin to dig into the importance of politics and policy as 21st-century conservatives evaluate the effectiveness of American society and longstanding institutions.

Ed shares his perspective on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) while serving as chairman for Governor Glenn Youngkin’s commission responsible for appointing board members to state universities, “In some of the world’s greatest universities, woke is everywhere. We’re all in favor of more opportunity, but equity implies everyone will turn out equal and it has become more of a leveling down.”

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.
