Host: Newt Gingrich
The most important political battle of our time is not between the left and the right, but between the past and the future. America is on the edge of a breakout. In fact, we are poised for one of the most spectacular leaps in human well-being in history. Pioneers of the future are achieving breakthroughs in medicine, transportation, energy, education, and other fields that will make the world a dramatically better place–unless the prison guards of the past succeed in stopping them. In this podcast, former speaker of the House and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich discusses this struggle between pioneers of the future and prison guards of the past and how a breakout movement could transform our politics and our lives.
