Talking American Nations with CityLab, Sen. Collins’ Roe position with CSPAN

I recently spoke with CityLab‘s Laura Bliss about the American Nations framework, where it came from, and how I came to create it. Here’s her piece, which appeared last week. (The framework has been getting renewed attention on account of a New York Times OpEd that appeared July 26.)

With a Supreme Court nomination struggle looming, all eyes remain on Republican Senate centrists Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Last CSPAN’s Washington Journal about Collins’ position on Roe v Wade and the nomination, and what outside legal experts have to say about it. You can find the clip here.

month I spoke with

I last appeared on CSPAN last summer, talking about American Character and The Lobster Coast with their mobile crew on their visit to the Portland, Maine area. Previously, they broadcast my full American Nations talk at Iowa State.

And to round matters out, I appeared in the UK’s Bristol Post recently discussing pirates, on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard’s death. (This the subject of my third book, The Republic of Pirates.)
