Chuck is one of America’s leading economic equality campaigners, a Senior Scholar at the Institute of Policy Studies, a co-editor of Inequality.org, an author of several books including his autobiography Born on Third Base, and a longtime advisor to Senator Bernie Sanders. Chuck is also well known for his incredible story of growing up in a life of huge wealth and privilege and how he ended up giving away his fortune. This is something he talks about in this interview as well as discussing topics ranging from Donald Trump and populism, philanthropy, the potential and prospects of people power, and his particular interest in the world of trees.
Just to say the main interview was approximately 60 minutes and this is then followed by a questions and answers session with the audience. Some of the questions from the audience didn’t get picked up by the microphones but they should make sense when you hear Chuck respond.
It was a great experience doing the live interview from Wynn’s Hotel in Dublin and to meet so many Love and Courage listeners there. We had great music from one of my favourite musicians, Enda Reilly, and it was an added bonus that so many people stayed behind to chat and connect with each other. The live format is something I hope to explore again in the future. You can also watch a video of the event via a link on LoveandCourage.org and on the LoveandCourage.org youtube channel.
Thanks as always for your support for the Love and Courage podcast, especially those of you who have been spreading the word and chipping in online at LoveandCourage.org.
