The American Adversaries

American Adversaries Radio Network is the fastest growing local talk radio show in Metro Orlando.  Our successful format brings important political topics to our listening audience with an enlightening, humorous and entertaining style.

We call the show The American Adversaries because we enjoy an adversarial form of government which is our defense against tyranny.  This is unique in history and is why we are known as exceptional.  In order to help explain the world of politics, we liken it to the pro-wrestling universe.  Both are theaters of the absurd.  Our show’s primary focus is to bring clarity and originality to our commentaries.  Our listeners have a platform to voice their opinions as well as speak to studio guests – giving our show a special “hometown” appeal.

The goal of the show is to entertain, educate, and enlighten.  We discuss mostly national issues, but include local issues as well.  No topic is off limits.

Our guests are political authors, commentators, local and national politicians, entertainers and every-day people making a big difference in our community.  We also act as a bulletin board for select local charities and political groups.
