Becoming Madison: A Conversation with Author Michael Signer


James Madison’s method to guide political discussion is to politics as Lao Tze’s “Art of War” is to battle tactics. His passion and preparedness completely neutralized the fiery orators such as Patrick Henry. Madison was even more amazing considering he wrestled with debilitating anxieties that manifested into physical infirmities. Nonetheless, as debates roared among the Founding Fathers, a building calm would settle-in as they all paused to hear what Madison will say. This book is not just a wonderful historical account of James Madison and his life. It’s also a brilliant examination of civil political tactics that can be applied to any contemporary environment where politics are encountered – government, corporate, and service. Listen to this interesting conversation and then you are encouraged to buy the book.

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.
