Ep. 229 - Eli Merritt


Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this our 229th episode our guest is Eli Merritt.
A political historian at Vanderbilt, Eli Merritt has written about the dangers of demagogues to democracy for The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Seattle Times, Chicago Tribune, Newsday and Philadelphia Inquirer, among dozens of other news outlets. He writes a Substack newsletter called "American Commonwealth" that explores the origins of the United States’ political discontents and solutions to them.
His new book, “How to Save Democracy: Advice and Inspiration from 95 World Leaders,” is a collection of 423 quotations derived from the First International Summit for Democracy and was published March 14 by Amplify Publishing Group.
