Defenders of Freedom

This special show is dedicated to American heroes. And there’s nothing more sorely needed in today’s America than a reminder that true acts of courage and heroism still do exist. Mike Slater and his guests look back at history, to mine stories from the past that deserve our attention — such as the Tuskegee Airmen, who fought for justice at home and risked their lives fighting for justice abroad. There’s a reason all the heroes of World War II are called The Greatest Generation. The contrast between adversity faced then compared to what Americans complain about now is nothing short of stunning.
