About the Clarkcast with Matt Clark
No one can deny that we live in interesting times. While some may think the political debate lies between Democrats and Republicans, nothing can be further from the truth. It's time the American people understood what's really at stake. The Clarkcast serves many purposes, but none greater than focusing on the true issue – saving the Republic. As a country, we have lost the vision of our Founding Fathers and their creation of a constitutionally limited government. Today, both political parties believe in a big government with unlimited spending, seemingly unlimited power, and showering their supporters with empty promises of entitlements. It's not sustainable and this must stop.
If we are to restore our country, we must embrace what made America truly great. Matt Clark has dedicated his work on the Clarkcast to unveiling the insanity of todays politics, focusing on the relevant history, and offering a fresh and young perspective. If you think it's all "doom and gloom," then you're mistaken! We add some fun in the mix along the way.
Unlike most shows, the Clarkcast is bold, brash, and right to the point. Matt doesn't hold back from telling you what's on his mind. As for political correctness, don't expect any. These are tough times that demand tough action and "tough love" as they say. If you're looking for a host a little more tame, then switch the dial. On the other hand, if you are looking for a radio program that doesn't side with any political party and is willing to call anyone out to expose the truth, then you've come to the right place.
Matt Clark is one of the nation's youngest talk radio personalities on terrestrial radio, beginning his talk radio career at age 23. Two years prior to his start, Matt created the idea for the "Clarkcast" during his junior year at the University of Michigan. Looking for an outlet to express his political view points and arguments, Matt was inspired by his passion for radio to create a website that featured his own crude show via podcasts. The concept included the use of comedy and satire, which would be needed to add an entertainment value, as well as information to the podcasts.
The program grew exponentially within its first year. Toward the end of 2009, the show could be streamed live online. The Clarkcast began this feat by broadcasting at set times of the week and gave listeners an opportunity to call into the program. The show also adopted standard weekly segments that featured a lighter side to the world of politics.
In late May of 2010, less than a year since the program created its first podcast, it was announced that the Clarkcast would broadcast live on the airwaves of WAAM-AM – a news/talk radio station in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The program can still be heard on WAAM and simulcasted on other stations such as FTR Radio.
Matt holds a degree in history from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor (Go Blue!) and still resides in the Great Lakes State.
