Clay & David recap Clay's performances at the Fargo Theatre in Fargo, ND with guest host Bill Thomas of Prairie Public Radio. The two shows, taped in front of a live audience, will be broadcast in the upcoming weeks. The first is on the subject of religion. On this 1776 Club episode, Clay & David tackle one of the most-discussed questions on this topic: was Thomas Jefferson a Christian?
Listen in as Clay & David discuss their summers, the commemorative quarter for Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and new projects — including the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and a new book about conservation. Animadversions on this episode broach subjects such as food, recording quality and bibliophilic materialism.
The big question on today's 1776 Club broadcast is, "When do you feel proudest to be an American?" Clay & David discuss moments and achievements that give them pride.
Hear more conversation between Clay & David about the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Sacred Stone Camp in Standing Rock, North Dakota.
Listen in as David interviews Clay, on behalf of Prairie Public Radio, about the Thomas Jefferson Hour and Clay's history with the show.
On this 1776 Club broadcast, Clay & David discuss Alexander Hamilton; Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical, Hamilton; and related topics, including Jason Frank and Isaac Kramnick's June 2016 opinion piece in the New York Times, "What ‘Hamilton’ Forgets About Hamilton".
This week's 1776 Club broadcast is a follow-up to the regular episode, including more out-of-character conversation with Clay's daughter, Catherine. The bonus episode wraps up when we learn that Catherine's real reason for hosting was just so she could have her Frasier Crane moment.
