New York Times bestselling author John W. Dean and the son of conservative icon Barry Goldwater come together to show why Goldwater matters.
John Dean was White House legal counsel to President Nixon, chief minority counsel for the House Judiciary Committee, and associate deputy attorney general in the U.S. Department of Justice. He is the New York Times bestselling author of Worse Than Watergate, The Rehnquist Choice, Broken Government, and Conservatives without Conscience. Currently a columnist for Findlaw.com, Dean lives in Beverly Hills, California. Barry M. Goldwater, Jr., the son of Senator Barry Goldwater, served as Congressman from California for fourteen years. During that time, he served on a number of committees, including the Committee on Science and Technology, the Committee on Public Works and Transportation, and the Joint Committee on Energy. He also served on the privacy commission that looked into privacy issues affecting the private and corporate sectors. Goldwater retired from politics in 1983 and entered business in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and New York. Since then, he has held responsible positions involving finance, management, and sales. Mel Foster is a former ad agency executive who used to record test tracks for commercials. An audiobook narrator since 2002, he won an Audie Award for Finding God in Unexpected Places by Philip Yancey and an AudioFile Earphones Award for the novel Match Made in Heaven by Bob Mitchell. Mel is the author of several novels, including Shaking Hands with Lefkowitz, and he hopes that one day listeners will get the opportunity to hear him reading something that he's written himself.
