About this episode
Joe Walsh was a right wing conservative talk radio host with a huge audience on the path to be a major player in the Republican Party. However, it all disappeared when he started speaking out against then President Trump. He lost his entire audience and his radio show, his income, most of his friends, and much of his family. And yet, what has emerged is someone who is still a conservative but far more interested in having conversations and finding common ground. He has been on quite a journey from “musket grabbing tea partier” to host of the White Flag podcast: open, curious, willing to listen, learn, and apologize for past wrongs.
