When America Stopped Being Great – Nick Bryant

Listen now:

There’s a sadness to Nick Bryant’s valediction to the United States that the title doesn’t try to sugar coat. When America Stopped Being Great isn’t a paean to a future in which millennials scattering Bitcoins as they go will ride a digital wave to put right all of the country’s undeniable wrongs. It is, alas, more about those problems and the mixed-up place into which Bryant’s daughter Honor, in the third month of Covid and the third night of a New York curfew, had the fortune to be born. Life doesn’t stop, as he talks about being received by Donald Trump with extraordinary courtesy and laments Hillary Clinton’s politically fatal aloofness. Join me for Nick’s remarkably fond farewell.
