“Ronald Reagan, the actor!?!?”

With these words, the great inventor Doc Brown from the hit movie Back to the Future was stunned to learn that Reagan was president of the United States in 1985. Indeed, to many, the idea of the former B-movie actor as leader of the free world was an absurd idea. Few, however, would predict that this unlikeliest of presidents would alter the course of American history. In this episode, we cover Ronald Reagan’s rise to power and how he sought to do the unthinkable: win the Cold War and destroy Soviet communism forever.
