4:20 – Presidents’ Day Week: The Founders at Home: The Building of America
Through the Founders’ own voices—and in the homes they designed and built to embody the ideal of domestic happiness they fought to achieve—we come to understand why the American Revolution, of all great revolutions, was the only enduring success. The Founders were vivid, energetic, and mostly Christian men, with sophisticated worldviews. We look at them, drawing liberally from their own eloquent writings on their actions and well-considered intentions. Myron Magnet knows these men’s lives intimately and joins us to discuss them

5:20 – How a Ukrainian Woman Views the Current Explosive Situation
A year ago, you could take a weekend stroll through Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, admiring the city’s baroque architecture and watching teenagers skating near the fountains. But even at that time you could tell something was amiss in Kyiv and in Ukraine. It was challenging to get a university degree without paying bribes. Winning a court case with no high-level contacts was complicated. Now, after protests that have escalated to violent confrontation with dozens of people being killed and missing, we can see the situation clearly now. The protesters are voicing problems that have been plaguing Ukraine for the past years. We talk to Iryna Fedets, who has lived in Ukraine for most of her life and is now a Visiting Senior Policy Analyst at The Heritage Foundation

5:40 – Daughters in Danger: Helping Our Girls Thrive in Today’s Culture
Respected family advocate Elayne Bennett is here to bring hope and encouragement to families and shows the way to save our daughters from the many threats they face. Many girls today are caught up in a world that devalues them and prioritizes perceived needs and desires, in ways that will break their very hearts. Much of our culture undermines girls and damages their souls. We look at how American families can rescue daughters from the negative and destructive patterns of our culture. We explore why progressive feminism is the wrong answer and an inadequate solution. We learn how mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, friends, schools, colleges and universities can be involved in saving our daughters. And we look at why—especially families—bear the responsibility for encouraging and supporting, training and directing, loving and cherishing daughters everywhere.
