John Sweeney is trouble. He's taken on Vladimir Putin, challenged Donald Trump, and after months of uncovering hard truths in Ukraine, this old-school reporter is back. John is never silent about what he’s experienced. Sweeney talks, and in this podcast, so do his guests.

John speaks to people like him, who are not prepared to be part of the silent majority. They have put their livelihoods and personal reputations on the line to challenge those who run our governments, lead our industries, control our finances and dictate the way we live. They refused to toe the line, and have found themselves in trouble. Big trouble. Activists, agitators, heroes… or villains. You decide.

Go to Global Player for exclusive bonus episodes where John offers candid reflections on what he's discovered during each interview, what surprised him and what we can learn from it all.

    Alison Bellamy: The reporter befriended by Jimmy Savile

    In the early 2000s, Alison Bellamy was Jimmy Savile’s ‘good news girl’, writing the positive press stories on which he thrived.

Hundreds of accounts of his sexual abuse surfaced, and Alison was left devastated and betrayed.

    John McDonnell MP: The most left-wing Chancellor we never had

    John McDonnell MP: The most left-wing Chancellor we never had

    Throughout the glory days of New Labour, John McDonnell sat on the backbenches, a-snivelling and a-sniping. Then his best mate, Jeremy Corbyn, became Labour Leader and the Left got achingly close to power. But in 2019, it all went horribly wrong, as Labour lost voters on all sides and suffered a crushing defeat to the Tories. Boris Johnson became Prime Minister and John quit the shadow cabinet. Labour were in trouble… big trouble. How did John cope with such an emphatic rejection by the British public?
