Robert Strauss interview

Tonight’s guest is author Robert Strauss.

Robert hales from Haddonfield, New Jersey and has been a reporter at Sports Illustrated; a feature writer for the Philadelphia Daily News; a news and sports producer for KYW-TV, then the NBC affiliate in Philadelphia; and the TV critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Asbury Park Press.

For the last two decades, he has been a freelance journalist, his most prominent client being the New York Times, where he has had more than one thousand bylines. He has taught nonfiction writing at the University of Pennsylvania since 1999 and has been an adjunct professor at Temple University, the University of Delaware, and St. Joseph’s University as well.

In 2011 he released his first book, “Daddy’s Little Goalie,” a memoir about being the dad of girl athletes.

In 2016 he released his first book, “Worst. President. Ever’, an irreverent biography of James Buchanan, which won the Independent Publishers Association Gold Medal for Biography.

Tonight, however, I will be interviewing Robert about his next book which will be released in March 1, 2021, a scholarly biography of legendary Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court John Marshall titled “John Marshall: the Last Founder”.
