About The Show

Missing America is the story of how the United States, under Trump, has abdicated its role as an example for the world. Host and former Deputy National Security Advisor to President Obama, Ben Rhodes speaks to inspiring leaders and activists who are fighting to take up the slack in America’s absence, in a world where nationalism, authoritarianism, and disinformation have taken hold like never before. Learning from their examples and advice, we’ll discover what the US must do to confront these challenges. Missing America is a 9 part limited podcast series from Crooked Media.
