FreedomFest is famous for attracting top celebrity speakers — William Shatner, George Foreman, Kevin O’Leary and John Cleese, to name a few.
I’ve been dying to tell you who our celebrity speaker is for FreedomFest this July 12-15 in Memphis.
Now, he’s finally confirmed that he will come, and you are in for a treat. I call him “the man who has restored my faith in America.”
Yes, Mike Rowe, the executive producer of such TV series as “Dirty Jobs,” “Somebody’s Gotta Do It,” “How America Works” and “The Story Behind the Story,” will appear in person at FreedomFest.
Mike Rowe is the author of the New York Times bestseller “The Way I Heard It” and podcaster extraordinaire (go here to listen). I’m reading his book right now and it’s fun to read on every page.
He is one of the most in-demand speakers in the world, and he’s coming to Memphis.
An American Hero Liked Across the Political Divide
One thing I really like about Mike Rowe is that he brings Americans together. Here’s an American hero who can talk comfortably with Chris Cuomo on NewsNation (and CNN before that) and Tucker Carlson on Fox News. How rare is that!
You won’t want to miss his upbeat message about how he’s making a difference in reinvigorating America’s work ethic. His mikeroweWORKS Foundation is committed to improve the skilled trades and has awarded over $6 million in work ethic scholarships to over 1,500 men and women. (He even donates part of the online profits from the sale of his Knobel Tennessee Whiskey to his foundation; go online and grab a bottle, or stop by their booth at FreedomFest!)
Here’s your chance to hear and meet the man behind “Dirty Jobs” and the incredible stories about successful skilled tradesmen and entrepreneurs in America. He’s an inspiration and proof that the American dream is still alive.
After his general session talk and interview, you will get a chance to ask him a question… and then an opportunity to “meet and greet” him afterwards. Only at FreedomFest.

Plus, there will be a special interview with Jeremy Siegel, the “Wizard of Wharton,” and Burt Malkiel (Princeton). Our financial editors at Eagle Publishing will all be at FreedomFest — Jim Woods, Bryan Perry, George Gilder, Roger Michalski and Paul Dykewicz — as part of our three-day investment conference.

All-Star Pitcher and Hitter Shohei Ohtani Showcases Special Talents
Shohei Ohtani is a great baseball player for his capabilities as both a pitcher and a hitter. There is no one else like him in the world of baseball today. His success harkens back to Babe Ruth, who began his career as a pitcher, later became an outfielder and ultimately set Major League Baseball home run records for the legendary New York Yankees.

Ohtani’s elite capabilities were on display Monday evening, May 15, when my editor watched the Japanese player lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 9-5 against the young and surprisingly competitive Baltimore Orioles. Despite giving up three home runs among the four hits he allowed in seven innings, Ohtani’s rare skills helped him to collect four hits, including a mammoth three-run homer, a standup triple and two singles. He also walked and struck out.
The World Baseball Classic (WBC) in the spring featured a final game between Ohtani’s Japan and his Angels’ teammate Mike Trout, who was captain of the United States team. In the ninth inning with two outs and the United States trailing by one run, Ohtani struck out Trout with the game on the line. Apparently feeling slighted after losing the American League most valuable player (MVP) award last season to New York Yankees’ slugger Aaron Judge, who hit an astounding 62 homers, Ohtani is showcasing his special skills this season wherever he goes.
Baseball is known as America’s national pastime, but Ohtani’s arrival in the United States is another example of how the sport has grown internationally. Much like when Japan’s Ichiro Suzuki came to America and starred on the diamond in his 28-year professional baseball career, Ohtani is helping to popularize baseball even further throughout the world with his on-field exploits in the WBC and the MLB.
