Ed and Ron are honored to have Joshua Gilder on the show. As former President Ronald Reagan’s senior speech writer, his first speech for the President won acclaim for the line “Go Ahead, Make My Day!” He co-authored two State of the Union addresses and contributed to many of the President’s televised speeches from the Oval Office. He wrote Mr. Reagan’s highly regarded 1988 Moscow Summit address to students at Moscow State University, which opens our show. He has served as a consultant and advisor on numerous Presidential primary and general campaigns, including Reagan ’84, Bush ’88, Forbes ’96, Dole ’96, Forbes '00, and Giuliani '08. His novel, Ghost Image, was published in 2002 and his scientific history of the dramatic collaboration of Johannes Kepler and Tycho Brahe, Heavenly Intrigue, (co-authored with his wife, Anne-Lee Gilder) was published in 2004. Like our conversation with Peter Robinson, another Reagan speechwriter, this is living history in the making.
