Ignorance and Power (with Jon Meacham)
On this week’s episode of Stay Tuned, “Ignorance and Power,” Preet answers listener questions about whether President Trump can legally destroy records during the transition period and whether he can issue pardons in secret. Then, Preet is joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham to talk through this historical moment in presidential politics, the importance of decency, and his new podcast, “It Was Said,” which looks back at some of the most memorable speeches in American history.
