As an open-minded, 22-year-old graduate of Harvard, Julie became a conservative after discovering Dennis Prager's radio show. After reaching out to Dennis to express her appreciation for his work, a friendship was born that became a mentorship. Dennis then invited her as a guest on his radio show. The following summer, Julie appeared as a weekly on-air contributor to his nationally syndicated radio program. At the age of 21, Julie guest-hosted three-hour broadcasts for both The Dennis Prager Show and The Mike Gallagher Show, becoming the youngest person to solo substitute host on a national program. On "Timeless", Julie explores her views on life, politics, and current events.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn is a name that every American should know.  But sadly, and unsurprisingly, few do. Solzhenitsyn grew up in the height of Soviet Russia and became disillusioned with the Soviet apparatus and published articles and books criticizing Josef Stalin and the regime.  To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Gulag Archipelago, Julie is joined by Spencer Klavan for this episode in the Thinker of the Month series to talk about why we should all know about the life of Solzhenitsyn and his insights about communism.  Spencer A. Klavan, editor of The American Mind, associate editor of the Claremont Review of Books, host of the Young Heretics podcast, is also the author of How to Save the West: Ancient Wisdom for 5 Modern Crises https://shorturl.at/zFR57 Spencer and his father Andew have started a new substack The New Jerusalem https://thenewjerusalem.substack.com/archive Check out other Julie Hartman videos: https://www.youtube.com/@juliehartman Follow Julie Hartman on social media: Website: https://juliehartmanshow.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/julierhartman/ X: https://twitter.com/JulieRHartman
