Fremont for President

My new Bookmonger podcast is with John Bicknell, author of Lincoln’s Pathfinder: John C. Fremont and the Violent Election of 1856. We talk about the first Republican candidate for president, whether he needed to lose for Lincoln to win, and why James Buchanan was such a rotten president.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
