Stay Tuned: What Patriotism Means To You (with Heidi Schreck)

Show Notes

Happy Fourth of July! In honor of the country’s birthday, we’re bringing you a special episode of Stay Tuned with Preet… and you!

Last week, we asked you to tell us what patriotism means to you and you have moved us with your overwhelming response. Listen through to the end of today’s episode for a compilation of the many thoughtful voices we heard from. Plus, Preet reflects on YOUR answers, and what patriotism means to him.

This week’s guest is Heidi Schreck. She is a playwright and an actress. She joins Preet to discuss her play, What The Constitution Means To Me. Nominated for two Tony Awards, and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, the show is inspired by Schrek’s time as a fifteen-year-old high school student competing in American Legion speech and debate contests, where she spoke about the meaning of our founding document.
