The Book Show #1350 - Doris Kearns Goodwin
Teddy Roosevelt described the power of the presidency to shape public opinion as “The Bully Pulpit”. That's also the title of the new book from presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, in which she writes about William Howard Taft and Teddy Roosevelt and explains the unique relationship forged with reporters.
This is an Off the Shelf edition of The Book Show in partnership with Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs, NY and recorded before a live audience.
Aired originally as Book Show #1326.
