Info: Our guest is author and historian Tevi Troy. He discusses his new book, “What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted: 200 Years of Popular Culture in The White House.” He describes the book as a tale of how presidents have been shaped by culture, and how they have helped shape popular culture. He describes the reading and movie viewing habits of many chief executives and he describes the White House movie theater and its many uses over the years. He comments on the assertion that Theodore Roosevelt read a book a day. He discusses how he researched the book, and talks about his own mentors and people who influenced him as well. In discussing the current president, Troy suggests that President Obama prefers “dark and gritty” television dramas, while Michelle and the children opt for more light-hearted sitcoms. Troy also comments on the role of social media in the White House and he asserts it is going to become much important for future administrations.
