Award-winning host Ken Harbaugh interviews politicians, authors, activists, and other change-makers about the most important issues we face today.

The title for this podcast, Burn The Boats, is inspired by an order given by Alexander the Great to his Navy in 332 BC. Upon landing his forces on the shores of Persia, he told his commanders to “Burn the boats.” The message was clear. Alexander’s Army would either win by advancing, or die on the beaches. There would be no turning back.

America today is at a crossroads. What will define us, in the crises we currently face and for generations to come, are the choices we make when failure is not an option.
