Episode 13 | Mark Paoletta
39:24

The left is hell-bent on tearing down our institutions. Their current target? The Supreme Court. 


In recent days, we’ve watched them invade neighborhoods across the Washington, D.C., area to demonstrate and protest at the residences of justices. They call them enemies of democracy and, ultimately, the American people. 


Mark Paoletta is an attorney, author, and personal friend of Justice Clarence Thomas. Under President George H.W. Bush, he played a pivotal role in his confirmation. 


Opening up on his personal relationship with Thomas, Paoletta offers a redeeming glimpse at a public servant the left has unceasingly attempted to vilify. We’ll discuss that, the exciting new book he’s co-authoring, “Created Equal,” and more on this week’s episode of The Kevin Roberts Show.

Episode 12 | Peter Schweizer
28:32

The left-wing political elites in the centers of power in Washington, Wall Street, and Silicon Valley aren’t just disconnected from the rest of the country—they’re playing the field behind our backs. They’re pushing a leftist agenda and enriching themselves while compromising our nation’s values and our very safety and security.


And they’re playing right into China’s hands.

Episode 11 | Chris Rufo
43:03

This week, we’re talking about Critical Race Theory — one of the most dangerous, subversive, and sinister ideologies facing us that classifies Americans based on the color of their skin, and pits them against one another, casting citizens as either oppressor or oppressed.


Joining to dive deeper into this issue is Chris Rufo, an investigative reporter who has worked tirelessly to uncover how Critical Race Theory’s and woke ideology are creeping into education, the corporate world, and beyond.

Episode 10 | Valerie Huber
32:00

This week, we’re gonna pull back the curtain on the hypocrisy of the left’s so-called pro-woman agenda. In reality, it’s often pro-woman in name only. It’s a screen they hide behind to push a whole host of radical, far-left policies. 


When you peel back the layers, you’ll find that those policies are often actually extremely harmful to women. 


Joining the show to lay out policies that actually help and empower women is Valerie Huber, president and CEO of The Institute for Women’s Health.

Episode 9 | Terry Schilling
39:44

This week, we’re going to talk about a crisis that strikes at the heart of our country, our society, and ultimately, our families — the boy crisis. 

 

An absence of fathers is a primary driver in this dilemma, one exacerbated by the left's push to dismantle the concept of family as we fundamentally understand it.

 

As we address this boy crisis, it becomes increasingly clear just how desperately our culture needs men — men guided by truth, who love their families, and take responsibility for bettering this country. 

 

So how do we reclaim boys, men, and ultimately families as an institutional building block of society? We’re tackling just that with Terry Schilling. 

 

Terry serves as president of the American Principles Project, an organization dedicated to making the family the most well-represented special interest group here in our nation’s capital. PLUS: Reactions to woke children’s books — books the left are employing in their attempt to radicalize your kids.

Episode 8 | Jonathan Sanford
36:40

Our public education system has been utterly captured by woke activists more interested in politics than knowledge. During the Covid pandemic, teachers’ unions, school boards, and education bureaucracies proved themselves openly hostile to the rights of parents and interests of students – and above any accountability to the taxpayers and families they serve.


Leftist educational officials advocate for rolling both radical gender ideology and critical race theory into curricula. Their goal is indoctrinating the coming generations of Americans.


Meanwhile, American universities have not only turned on our country’s history and ideals. They have turned on the traditional idea of education itself.


How? Why? And what can Americans do about it? We’re taking all of it on. We’ll hear from University of Dallas president Jonathan Sanford, and Heritage Action for America executive director Jessica Anderson.

Episode 7 | Erik Finman
42:21

Big Tech is bent on pushing a left-leaning agenda, inching us ever closer to a reality where those they disagree with — often conservatives — have their liberties hampered.


Their influence has spread to high echelons of government and continually deeper into our lives as our world becomes more and more integrated with the digital space.


As we’ve seen in the case of the Freedom Convoy truckers in Canada, something as simple as banking and purchasing power can be stripped away from citizens in this digital era.


Unfortunately, this problem isn’t bound to Canada, but has cropped up in the United States as well.


Joining us to confront the ugly reality of Big Tech’s ever tightening grip on our lives — on our speech, our politics, and even our commerce — and etch out how we can push back is Erik Finman, an entrepreneur who became a millionaire as a teenager building a multi-million dollar cryptocurrency company.

Episode 6 | Mike Pompeo
33:24

This week, we’re talking about all the trouble in the world and, in particular, the greatest source of it: the Chinese Communist Party.


Even in the midst of war in Europe, and inflation and border crises here at home, there is no topic more important to America’s national interests these days than China, and no one better to hear from than former CIA Director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.


PLUS: We'll hear from Heritage's own Brent Sadler — a Navy Veteran with more than 25 years of experience who served on the China Branch at the Pentagon.

Episode 5 | Rep. Brian Babin
44:21

In just a little over a year, Joe Biden has created the worst immigration crisis our country has ever faced. When he came into office, he went to work immediately uprooting and upending so many effective policies that were working to keep our border secure. 


We’ve seen men, women, and young children trafficked across the border by violent smugglers and drug cartels who extort them, abuse them, and even kill them.  


What’s more — the crisis has opened the floodgates to a surge of deadly drugs like fentanyl, which have become a serious problem in cities and towns across our land.


Simply put, Biden’s policies have sent a message to the rest of the world—a message that says America’s borders are wide open, and that lawbreaking is tolerated, and in some cases, rewarded. 


Joining us to break down just how bad things have become — and guidance on how we can shore up this influx of crime and — are Congressman Brian Babin and the former head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan.

Episode 4 | Julio Rosas
35:05

We watch it, read it, listen to it — on our computers, our phones, and our televisions — even on the radio.

 

It’s the news.

 

Unfortunately, so many legacy and corporate news outlets prioritize advancing someone’s political agenda over revealing the truth — something that has become all too common. At a time when we need solid facts, Americans are often poorly served.

 

So how do we confront this dilemma? Is there anywhere we can turn for trustworthy and honest reporting?

 

Townhall reporter Julio Rosas — someone who has been on the front lines of critical stories in America — joins us to share his insights on the consequences of media malpractice.


PLUS: Armed with more than 20 years of journalism experience and recipient of prestigious awards in this field, Heritage’s own vice president of communication, Rob Bluey, weighs in on the issue.

Episode 3 | Sen. Mike Lee
27:47

Economic freedom is one of mankind’s best ideas. It is responsible for more advances in living standards, health, knowledge, multicultural harmony and social justice than anything else we’ve come up with in the last 2,000 years. 


This week, we’re joined by Senator Mike Lee of Utah to dig into just what that freedom looks like, how the fight to preserve it is shaping up as the Biden administration continually pushes for radical spending that would further bloat the federal government, and more.


PLUS: Heritage’s own Matt Dickerson breaks down Capitol Hill’s budget process and how we can dig ourselves out of a hole of debt 30 trillion dollars deep.

Episode 2 | Sen. Rick Scott
23:40

This week, we're digging into Special Counsel John Durham’s latest filing on the origins of the FBI's Russia investigation. This newest batch of information exposes the hypocrisy of not only the radical left, but just how far they’ll go to advance the interests of the elite over that of the American people. While lack of fair coverage from the legacy media is perhaps not surprising, it's certainly disappointing.


What's more — the scandal flies in the face of the narrative that Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election — a narrative promoted by the Clinton campaign and others on the left.


None of this is lost on Senator Rick Scott; quite the contrary. The former Governor of Florida has long demanded transparency on this issue, calling for the media to cover it fairly. He joins the show to share his insight into what's going on — and what's next.


Plus: Heritage's own Mike Howell jumps in to share how policymakers can help prevent something like this from happening again. He also discusses Heritage's Conservative Oversight Project, and more.


Each episode of The Kevin Roberts Show is a weekly rallying cry for lovers of freedom everywhere, packed with Dr. Roberts’ analysis on the issues of the day and deep conversations with the movers and shakers of American politics and culture. And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation. 


As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.

Episode 1 | Sen. Tom Cotton
33:37

Even before the outbreak of COVID-19, China served as an irresponsible global actor that threatened American interests and values world-wide. The rise of China is the most persistent and consequential challenge that will confront the United States for the next several decades.


From the surveillance of American athletes and their sway in Hollywood to their military capabilities, China’s presence is one that our nation can ill-afford to underestimate.


In the first episode of The Kevin Roberts Show, Senator Tom Cotton and Heritage’s very own Dean Cheng weigh in to help break down how what their growing influence means for America and the rest of the world — and what we need to do to hold China accountable and maintain freedom.
