Spencer Moore serves in American Enterprise Institute’s development office and moonlights as the host of AEI’s policy podcast Banter. Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, Spencer graduated from Auburn University where he studied political science, history, and urban planning. When he isn’t raising money or podcasting, Spencer enjoys running, irreverent television shows, and watching Auburn sports.
This week’s episode of Banter featured a double-dose of Ronald Reagan. Henry Olsen, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, and Craig Shirley, author of four bestselling books on President Reagan, engaged in a conversation on Reagan and his legacy. Both have recently published books on Reagan: Olsen’s The Working Class Republican: Ronald Reagan and the Return of Blue-Collar Conservatism and Shirley’s Reagan Rising: The Decisive Years, 1976-1980, offer different interpretations of President Reagan’s conservatism. They discussed their views at an AEI event which also featured a discussion on the future of the Republican party. The link below will take you to the full event video.
