​Past, Present, and Future: A Conversation with David Rubenstein and Janet Hill about Politics, Education, and Leadership



Show Summary

How do we lead and become the best version of ourselves? How did our nation become so divided and income inequality so staggering? What were our founding principles and how can we, as Americans, live up to them? Is cryptocurrency here to stay? These questions and more are answered this week on Imagination in Action, where our two incredible speakers share their perspectives on life, the economy, and the country. Janet Hill and David Rubenstein, both of the Carlyle Group, talk with John and Allison about leadership, their childhoods and younger selves, cryptocurrency, the role of college, government service, the future of historical study, and the state of economic and political affairs both in Washington, D.C. and the country as a whole. This week’s show also features music from Max Holm, Caroline Goulding, and world renowned whistler Chris Ullman, who gives a stunning rendition of Duke Ellington’s “Take the ‘A’ Train” after meeting and whistling for David at the top of Washington Monument years earlier. Tune in this week for another funny, informative, and thought-provoking episode of Imagination in Action.
