Mark McKinnon first dreamed up the idea of a behind-the-scenes documentary series about the grueling nature of a presidential campaign back in 2002. Fourteen years later, it’s a smash hit on Showtime! In this episode of The Golden Mean, Mark joins me to talk about the show, this crazy political season, the state of the Republican Party – and the hidden meaning behind his ubiquitous Open Road Stetson!

  • Michael Golden has created a podcast for people who think. The 2016 campaign has dominated the news for more than a year, leaving me wondering why my smoke detector isn’t set off by my smoking case of election burnout. This interview brings back a thoughtful level of conversation that is rare. It isn’t just solid gold, it’s solid Golden. Great job.
