We Built This City on a Hill


Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Richard M. Gamble, author of In Search of the City on a Hill: The Making and Unmaking of an American Myth. We discuss where the “city on a hill” metaphor comes from, why Ronald Reagan started using it, and whether the United States really is a city on a hill.
