August 22, 2022

The clash between President Lyndon Johnson and Senator Robert F. Kennedy is the defining political relationship of the 1960s. On this week’s “Leaders and Legends” podcast, we talk with historian Jeff Shesol about his book “Mutual Contempt: Lyndon Johnson, Robert Kennedy and the Feud that Defined a Decade.” Without a doubt, this is one of the best political history books I have ever read—you will enjoy our conversation with this brilliant author.

About Girl Scouts of Central Indiana 

We're 2.5 million strong—more than 1.7 million girls and 750,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
