Today we are joined by the Mayor of the World, Mayor Rudolph “Rudy” William Louis Giuliani. Mayor Rudy provides a resolute voice in tackling the toughest domestic and international issues of our time — from long-standing global conflicts to terrorism and the new reality of cyber warfare to the future of health care reform and immigration to political leadership and insights on future elections.

Acclaimed as one of the most effective chief executives in modern American history for his leadership and bravery during 9-11, Giuliani was named TIME magazine’s Person of the Year, was given an honorary knighthood by the Queen of England and was awarded the Ronald Reagan Presidential Freedom Award. Never one to shy away from a battle, Giuliani almost single-handedly took on organized and white-collar crime in New York with a remarkable record of 4,000 convictions—one that very few attorneys can match. Ushering in a new era of fiscal responsibility and broad-based growth, he turned an inherited $2.3 billion budget deficit into a multibillion-dollar surplus and added a record 450,000 new private sector jobs. 

In this episode, Mayor Rudy and I looked back on the 9/11 attack as it approaches its 20th anniversary. We also discussed violent crimes, gun laws, leadership and how symbolism is related to it. This is such a good episode and we look forward to having Mayor Rudy again in the future. Enjoy!
