The 1968 podcast series documents a journey, for our country and for me personally, toward a doorway out of a past we will never return to toward a future we can scarcely imagine.

When 1968 began, I continued to harbor dreams of moving back to Spokane and becoming a doctor like my dad. As the year was ending, I was rehearsing for my first performance as a member of The Brothers Four. By the end of 1968 the American Dream and many Americans’ dreams would prove to be even more transformed than my own.

As the song 1968 declares: It was a year like other years, the best and worst of times. Twelve months that tried our souls and tried our hearts and minds. That brought us to the future we living to this day. The peril and the promise that was 1968.
