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.

Larry Schweikart, Amity Shlaes, Dr. Marc Siegel, Todd Starnes, and John Stossel.

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.
