203. New Year’s Special. Bonus Content from Historian Michael Beschloss to End 2022 Strong and Start 2023 Right.


As we look ahead to 2023 we’re going to take one last look at one of the best moments from our Patreon bonus content. Michael Beschloss (@BeschlossDC) is a truly important, inspiring and iconic American that is shaping what America has been, what it is, and what it will be. And he is a truly independent American. He joined host Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) back in Episode 196 – November 10, 2022 for some much needed post-election perspective.

As always, it was a conversation that helped you get smarter, predict better, and of course, stay vigilant. Because eternal vigilance is the price of freedom. And that crucial week, we all had a chance to see  what could happen if we’re willing to pay that price. It was an inspiring moment and it’s well reflected in this behind the scenes moment. It’s content that is normally only for members of our Patreon community. But since it’s that time of year we’re dropping this gift down your chimney. We hope you love it as much as we do. 

We’ll be back in January with more new guests and shows and as always Independent Americans will continue to be your trusted place for independent news, politics, inspiration and hope. 

Every episode of Independent Americans hosted by author, activist and social entrepreneur Paul Rieckhoff is the truth beyond the headlines–and light to contrast the heat of other politics and news shows. It’s content for the 50% of Americans that proudly call themselves independent. Always with a unique focus on national security, foreign affairs and military and veterans issues. This is another pod to help you stay vigilant. Because vigilance is the price of democracy. In these trying times especially, Independent Americans will continue to be your trusted place for independent news, politics, inspiration and hope.
