Season Premiere: Bo Bancroft on Books, Billboards, Extremism, and Jimmy Carter

Season 11 kicks off with Bo Bancroft, author of the debut novel, Make America Beautiful Again. Bancroft joins Alex for a fun, spirited, and frank conversation about the elements that went into his book, including his intense dislike of billboards, fighting extremism, and not letting the bad guys win.

He was with Turner Broadcasting during the heady days of cable TV as a team member that launched the now-familiar networks Headline News, TNT, and TCM. Bo also spent time with Fox launching their cable networks FX and FXM. Ohioan by birth, Bo and his wife have resided in the great state of Georgia. For the last several years, Bo has had the privilege of working for Habitat for Humanity International. In our can't-miss conversation, he also shares his thoughts on

  • CNN and the news media

  • The perils of social media for our country’s future

  • Americans being “connected in isolation”

  • Themes of justice in fiction

  • Jimmy Carter and the origins of Habitat for Humanity
