Scholar Clay Jenkinson, who has portrayed, with stunning accuracy, Thomas Jefferson, in venues all over the world, will assume the identity once more, for a sit-down interview with Jon Rappoport, Pulitzer-nominated reporter.
“Mr. Jefferson,” in character, will answer Jon’s questions about life in 2011, from his 18th-century perspective.
“I wish we had three hours,” Jon stated, “but we’ll squeeze in everything we can in one hour.”
What is Jefferson’s view of where America has gone in two centuries? Is it still a Republic? Should it be? How can a Constitution designed to fit fewer than three million citizens apply to a population of 300 million? Do even the rights and powers of individual states make sense, when one state, California, has 37 million residents? What about the national health-care plan? The state of public education? Mega-corporate influence? Two political parties with common agendas? The military-industrial complex? The Federal Reserve? Invasive surveillance?
The questions pile up.
This will be an intriguing and riveting hour of radio—a unique experience.
