Agony and Eloquence: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and a World of Revolution


The French Revolution and interpreting the role of government caused a bitter separation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. It led to backbiting, partisanship, and political dysfunction. Ultimately, it led to a prolonged separation and eleven years of no communication between them. Benjamin Rush eventually worked as a behind-the-scenes mediator to re-establish contacts between these two great men. These two men, despite their deep differences, discovered their friendship and respect were more important than political animosity. Listen to author Daniel L. Mallock discuss his new book and learn about an important chapter of American history.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
