American Lives is a special interview series in which we explore the overlap between the civic, professional, and personal lives and ideas of individuals who have recognized the value of what America has given them: liberty and opportunity. In turn, they each have worked to share their successes with others and help to ensure that the next generation understands what America is, what it has to offer, and why it must be understood and protected.

Each episode, available in both video and audio-only formats features an intimate sit-down interview between Jeff Sikkenga and one guest. We will post the most recent video versions here, and will archive each a special YouTube playlist for continuous access. You can also subscribe to the podcast here, and receive automatic updates of new episodes as their are published.
