Scott Gilbert was featured on Stand Up! with Pete Dominick, a SiriusXM radio show hosted by stand-up comedian and politics enthusiast Pete Dominick and produced by Alfred Schulz, Melanie Starling, and Chris Hauselt. The interview discussed U.S. President Barack Obama’s announcement regarding his scheduled visit to Cuba on March 21-22. President Obama will become the first sitting U.S. President to visit Cuba in 88 years.

In an interview with StandUp! guest host Josh Zepps of HuffPostLive, Mr. Gilbert discusses the Obama Administration’s substantial efforts to reverse more than half a century of myopic and demonstrably failed U.S. foreign policy, likening the historic impact of President Obama’s scheduled visit to the enthusiastic way that the people of West Berlin embraced President Kennedy in 1963.

The focus of the three-hour SiriusXM Insight program each day ranges from current events, politics, environmental issues, veterans affairs to parenting.
