New Podcast Celebrates Medal of Honor Recipients
Here at Evergreen Podcasts, we’re excited to announce the launch of the Medal of Honor podcast, a show we are doing in partnership with the National Medal of Honor Museum. With a unique short-form format of three minutes, this podcast will quickly honor some of the 3,500 men and women who have received the highest military honor in the United States. The stories of Medal of Honor recipients, demonstrating bravery in combat at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty, serve as an inspiration to all Americans.
The award is so much more than a military decoration; its significance reaches far beyond honoring individual bravery. The Medal of Honor is a beacon, one that serves not only to guide us but to unite us.
The Medal of Honor podcast will be hosted by Ken Harbaugh. Ken is a former Navy pilot and the past president of Team Rubicon Global. He served as a commentator for National Public Radio, as host of the Crooked Media podcast, Reclaiming Patriotism, and as a guest fellow at Yale University. Ken’s writing on service and citizenship has appeared in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Time, and in the Yale Journal of International Law. He lives near Cleveland, Ohio, with his wife and three children, and is the co-author of Here Be Dragons. You may know him from Evergreen’s other podcast, Burn the Boats.
"It’s an incredible honor to be able to tell these stories, of American heroes who rose to the challenge when duty called, often paying the ultimate sacrifice,” revealed Ken Harbaugh, host of Medal of Honor, “Now, more than ever, our nation needs examples of this kind of selflessness. The Medal of Honor Podcast celebrates America at its best.”
“I can’t think of a better moment to launch the Medal of Honor podcast than a time when our country is wrestling with what honor and duty are,” noted Michael DeAloia, our CEO, “As a nation, we are examining how our beloved institutions, like the military, evolve in modern times.”
Joe Daniels, President & CEO of The National Medal of Honor Museum was quoted as saying, “The National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation is honored to partner with Evergreen for the production of the Medal of Honor Podcast. As we work to build a permanent home in Arlington, Texas, for the treasured legacies and stories of Medal of Honor recipients, we welcome opportunities like this to educate Americans on the valor of those who received the Medal. We’re on a mission to inspire America and hope this show inspires listeners to live the values of the Medal: courage and sacrifice, commitment and integrity, citizenship, and patriotism.”
We’re excited about this new show and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. You can listen today on our website or anywhere you listen to podcasts.
