119. Wes Moore. Father’s Day Special (REWIND). Candidate For Governor of Maryland, Best-Selling Author and Veteran. On Fatherhood, Leadership, Crime and Inspiration.

As America emerges from the pandemic and summer begins, we’re sharing some of the best from our archives. Wes Moore recently declared his candidacy for Governor of Maryland, and this one is more relevant than ever. If you’ve never heard this episode, you’re in for a treat. And if you’re a long time listener, you’ll enjoy hearing this gem again. 

Wes Moore (@iamWesMoore) is an inspiring force for good and one of the most exciting and dynamic leaders in America. Wes is a best-selling author, activist, combat veteran and CEO of Robin Hood (@RobinHoodNYC). And now, a candiate for Governor of Maryland. 

His book, The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates describes his inspiring rise from inner city Baltimore to a Rhodes Scholarship and is an international phenomenon that will soon be a major motion picture produced by Oprah Winfrey. The 82nd Airborne combat veteran of Afghanistan and regular on Morning Joe joins Angry Americans and his old friend, Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) for a deep and inspiring conversation about leadership, poverty, crime and parenting. 

It’s a real and riveting conversation between Rieckhoff and another iconic, important and inspiring American that is shaping what our country is and what it will be in the future. The kind of conversation between two renowned thought-leaders that is defining Independent Americans.

“What all political pods ought to be: fun, engaging, freewheeling, and respectful – even welcoming- of different points of view. I’m a fan.”

That’s what political strategist Paul Begala called Independent Americans,
