Leonard Lopate at Large: Michael D’Antonio and Peter Eisner

Today, Leonard will discuss the new book “The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence,” with Pulitzer Prize-winner Michael D’Antonio and Emmy-nominated journalist Peter Eisner, who follow the path Pence followed from Catholic Democrat to conservative evangelical Republican. They reveal how he used his time as right-wing radio star to build connections with powerful donors; how he was a lackluster lawmaker in Congress but a prodigious fundraiser from the GOP’s billionaire benefactors; and how, once he locked in his views on the issues—anti-gay, pro-gun, anti-abortion, pro big-business – he became laser-focused on his own pursuit of power.

  1. Volume much too low

  2. We had ROBIN HOOD RADIO just repost what was recorded at WBAI and I the levels are too low sometimes and just this past show there’s some background noise as well but there’s nothing we can do about it as we do not record it.
