Willie Geist (@WillieGeist) is America’s cool dad. Hosting Morning Joe on MSNBC all week and hosting his own hugely popular Sunday TODAY show on NBC on the weekends. He’s also a devoted husband and dad. He joins us for a Father’s Day special to talk candidly about how he does both so well. He’s a leader that America trusts. And we’re gonna need him as we launch deeper into the most insane election year ever. 

As his star has continued to rise, he’s kept himself grounded. And always made time to mentor others and support countless leaders and charities. 

And, he was our first guest on this show EVER! (Episode 1 – April 4, 2019) And he rejoined us during the pandemic to reflect on July 4th back in 2020N (Episode 66 – July 3, 2020). 

Now, he’s back with us to share his insights, stories, wisdom and parental lessons learned. It’s Willie from inside his own house, with no barriers or commercial breaks. 

And your host Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) rips into all of it in this all new episode of Independent Americans. He’s busting into Senator Tommy Tuberville’s latest pro-Putin antics, why RFK Jr continues to do shady things, and why we can all learn so much from D-Day—one week later. 

So hit that download button now. You won’t be sorry. It’s the best free Father’s Day gift around.
