Featured on C-SPAN, Fox News, NPR, MSNBC, Bloomberg Radio, Sirius-XM, Radio France,
The Blaze, and ESPN, best-selling author David Pietrusza makes American history come alive.

He is available for both
in-person appearances and online events.

He has shared the program with his notables as diverse as Michael Dukakis, Steve Forbes,
Nomar Garciaparra, John Gizzi, Larry Kudlow, Tommy LaSorda, Bill "Spaceman" Lee, Rich
Lowry, Jack McKeon, Joseph Persico, Jim Rice, Amity Shlaes, Cal Thomas, Ted Williams, and
Dave Winfield.

Pietrusza's expertise extends beyond the myriad of books he's published. Listeners in
Washington, DC in November 2014 heard him predict the rise of newly-elected Arkansas
United Senator Tom Cotton as a Congressional foreign policy powerhouse; a February 2014
Washington audience saw him boldly forecast the eventual rise of then-obscure Carly Fiorina
to a top-tier GOP contender. Earlier, Newsmax readers read his prediction of future New York
City Mayor Bill DiBlasio's ascent. While others cheered revolution in Libya,
viewers heard him fearlessly warn of its perils: a string events leading to the tragic Arab Spring.
