About Us

We live in an extremely polarizing time. On The American Centrist, we believe we need to re-learn to talk to each other and that the "silent majority" lives in the center of most issues. We believe compromise is strength and the extremes come from fear. This show will a voice to the Center, one that demands to be heard and respected by politicians. Our American Centrist host, with no political background, will ask the tough questions to political strategists from the Right and the Left who 50 years of combined experience. We will discuss issues that impact our everyday lives, because to effectively argue one side, you have to fully understand the other.

We were there. The Rural American Vote is significant, the Church denies Joe Biden Communion, hate speech is on the rise — what are the answers?
