In this episode Matt Crawford speaks with author Mason B. Williams about his book City of Ambition: FDR, LaGuardia, and the Making of Modern New York. This book is a fantastic deep dive into the policies that helped form the famous infrastructure of New York. The backdrop of this story is the personal relationship between LaGuardia, a Republican and FDR, a Democrat. In the true meaning of bipartisanship these two men brought their parties together for the good of the country and its people. With lessons that could be used today, while a fantastic history book this could be used as a blueprint to govern today!
