Episode #76 -- "Tear Down This Wall!" For June 12, 2007.  Twenty years ago today, President Ronald Reagan made what might have been the most famous speech of his presidency, and what has become one of the most famous speeches of its decade.  I include a brief clip from the speech, and share my thoughts about Reagan as "the great communicator" and the times in which the speech was made.

You can find complete audio, video, and text transcripts of Reagan's Brandenburg Gate address at the American Rhetoric website.

Our episode music is "Movement One," by Ocean Alexander.  Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
