During this call-in program he discussed the 11 distinct nations of North America outlined in his book. According to Woodard, each has its own cultural and ideological DNA that still defines them today.


This call-in program was hosted by Keith Shortall, who, along with the listening public, directed questions to Mr. Woodard about the concept underlying the thesis of his book.
