The Making of Ronald Reagan with Paul Kengor

When Ronald Reagan became president in 1981, he brought with him a mix of old-fashioned Midwestern values with the glitz and glamour of Golden Age Hollywood. In this episode, we interview Professor Paul Kengor about Reagan’s unique, yet quintessentially American background. Paul Kengor is an author and professor of political science at Grove City College, a private Christian liberal arts college in Grove City, Pennsylvania. He is the executive director of Institute for Faith and Freedom, a Grove City College conservative think tank/policy center.
