Here is the first segment of my hour-long interview with Dave Agema, Michigan’s Republican National Committeeman.
Dave discusses his background, including his experience as a F4 Phantom fighter pilot during the Vietnam War and his career as an American Airlines pilot. Along the way he learned a lot of excellent lessons.
Fun fact: I asked Dave if flying the F4 Phantom was like what we saw in the film “Top Gun.” He said those planes have fuel for about two hours in the air, and to get maximum mileage he spent as much time flying upside down (as they do in the film) as right-side-up!
The plane also goes 1,600 miles per hour! That puts something like 5gs of force on the pilot, which tears up their vertebrae, which creates problems years down the line. Amazing story.
Listen in, you’ll learn a lot about what motivates one of the brightest lights in Michigan’s GOP.
Here is the second segment of my interview with Dave Agema. In the second segment, Dave discusses why he got into politics – he was never involved in any political party until he ran for state rep – and what’s on his agenda going forward.
