Host Cathilea Robinett pursues her guests’ personal backstories to understand what they bring to public service. Their stories – personal and professional – help explain their devotion to serving In The Arena, with all that President Teddy Roosevelt described as the “triumph of high achievement” and when “the doer of deeds could have done them better” in service of “a worthy cause.” She speaks to an array of people, including elected and appointed officials, to glean how their values, passions, lived experiences, choices, and even eccentricities helped them live and work more productively, with a mix of courage, compassion and creativity.

Customer Reviews

Lively and Interesting Discussions

I really enjoy this podcast because the interviews feel very natural and have a good flow. Cathilea interviews in such a way that it opens the floor up for some interesting dialogue. I am excited to find out who is the next one 'in the arena'.

Interesting and Inspiring!

In these political times I find this podcast refreshing, interesting and restoring my hope that there are good people out there in the trenches of public service that really do care about their citizens and making changes that benefit the people. Thank you for sharing these stories and I look forward to hearing more episodes!
