James and Al are joined by American historian Joseph Ellis for a deep dive into the politics, people and passions that set off the American Revolution on both sides of the Atlantic.  How deeply did the years of 1773 - 1783 shape our nation?  And after watching our country lose to two insurgencies across the globe and our politics fracture, what lessons can we learn?

Email your questions to James and Al at [email protected] or tweet them to @politicon.  

Make sure to include your city, we love to hear where you’re from!
