Welcome to the J.R. Hoeft Show!
J.R. has been podcasting since 2006, mainly interviewing political figures, but this show aims to broaden the horizon a bit and talk about those things that affect us all.
We might lament that “politics is in everything…I can’t escape!” but whether we’re talking about challenging the non-profit status of the church, kneeling at a football game, celebrities donating millions to a political party, how history plays a role in today’s events, or governments spending money to attract businesses to their communities, and countless other examples – politics pretty much does permeate everything and we ought to have the discussion in a civil and, hopefully, enjoyable, manner.
And what does politics mean, anyway? I like how Merriam-Webster defines it:
5 a: the total complex of relations between people living in society
So that’s what I’m going to try to do. And I am going to try to do it by talking to the experts.
Let’s get underway!
