The Neutral Ground Podcast

with Dr. Joe Meyer

The Neutral Ground Podcast is the place you come for meaningful conversations about the human experience without extreme noise and hot takes. It's for people who are tired of the bickering, tired of the politicization of everything, tired of feeling like we always have to be at odds with each other. My name is Dr. Joe Meyer. My research focuses on early American literature and history, the importance of the heroic narrative, and how historical movements have shaped the ways we interact with each other today. It is time for us to get out of the extreme sides and meet on neutral ground. Join us.
