I wish I had a partner as interesting and entertaining and as passionate as Greg Palast, a treasure of an undercover investigative reporter who has the back stories on major political scandals of our day. He’s too good at unearthing them not to draw the antagonism of the conservative, reactionary world — so much so that for a stretch he couldn’t get work here and lived in England where the BBC and the Guardian cared about what he had to say. And I care. He is a dogged truthteller, as you’ll hear listening to our podcast, and how refreshing that is in our age of posturing and worse. The truth shall set you free and Greg is perhaps the most outstanding truth teller of our day. He might be instrumental in moving our endangered species into the freedom from want and fear that should predominate. I’d have him even chair the Wisdom Council that’s on my to-do list as what I’d create if I ran the world, and you’ll hear us talk about that as you get at least a taste of the incendiary territory he operates in.
