Listen in on this in-depth interview with former U.S. Congressman from Indiana David McIntosh, as he recounts his experiences attending Yale University, how the Watergate scandal inspired his interest in politics, and the true story of how the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy was founded over pizza and beer during his tenure at the University of Chicago Law School. (Hint: One of his law professors was Antoni Scalia.) 

Hear McIntosh talk in-depth about the Federalist Society’s “founding fathers” view of the law and the ongoing tension between equity and justice, as well as his role in the Reagan White House and the failed Supreme Court nomination of Robert Bork. 

He also reflects on what place his faith has held in his political career and the place it holds in his current efforts as president of Club for Growth, the leading free-enterprise advocacy group in the nation, and promoters and shapers of the careers of conservative politicians such as Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.
