Charlie is joined by author of the mega bestseller, Hillbilly Elegy, J.D. Vance, whose memoir about growing up in in the Rust Belt sold over 3 million books and was later turned into a feature film. His story gave voice to millions of "forgotten Americans" who had been left behind by globalization and the offshoring of millions of middle class jobs that once secured the families and futures of American industrial heartland. J.D. and Charlie discuss his meteoric rise as both an author and a political voice for conservative populism that is increasingly mainstream within the conservative movement as he seriously considers a run for Senate from the great state of Ohio. This is a can't miss episode.
