238. End of Summer Madness. Eminem Slams Ramaswamy. Christie’s Strategy To Reach Independents in New Hampshire. Senator Redneck Continues to Lie. An Epic Little League World Series Ending. Don’t be like Giuliani. Be like Ohtani. Work Hard and Be Nice.

Summer is almost over. But the hits just keep on coming. Bad ones. Like a new school shooting at the University of North Carolina, Senator Redneck’s ongoing blocks on military promotions, and a hurricane hitting the south. But some good hits keep coming too. Like Simon Biles winning a record 8th gymnastics championship, the return of football, and the epic end to the Little League World Series. It’s been a summer of highs and lows. Jerks and heroes. And our host, Paul Rieckhoff’s got a quick summer installment of the pod hitting on the GOP infighting to be #2 to Trump, why Chris Christie thinks independents are key to winning the New Hampshire GOP primary, how Senator Tommy Tuberville continues to screw our military, how this summer has been full of examples of role models–and full of examples of the opposite–and MUCH more. This might be the only show in America to cover (and contrast) Rudy Giuliani and Shohai Ohtani. No. We’re not like other political and news podcasts. And proud of it. 

Every episode of Independent Americans hosted by author, activist and social entrepreneur Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) is the truth beyond the headlines–and light to contrast the heat of other politics and news shows. It’s content for the 49% 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.
