Charles C.W. Cooke from National Review riffs on America, our can do culture, and our exceptionalism!
Charles C.W. Cooke grew up in a small village just outside of Cambridge, UK, called Hemingford Abbots. He went to Oxford University, where he read Modern History and Politics, and immigrated to the US in 2011. He is the Editor of NationalReview.com and a writer for NR as well as a regular columnist for First Freedom, the magazine of the NRA. Charles has become –in my view—a first rate constitutional scholar, especially as it relates to the 2nd Amendment, and writes about some other passions with regularity, such as American and British history and intellectual history, free speech, American exceptionalism, amusement parks, and the joys of living in the 2nd greatest state in the Union, after Texas, of course—Florida. He and his friend, Kevin D. Williamson, have a fabulous podcast called Mad Dogs and Englishmen and Charles is also a regular on NR’s The Editors. I love to read Charles not only because he is a fine writer but because of the careful precision of his thinking, which you will hear on his podcasts and here today.
