    Donald Trump’s War against the CIA & FBI: What’s the damage to America?

    Donald Trump’s War against the CIA & FBI: What’s the damage to America?

    Even before he took office as President, Donald Trump launched full scale assaults against the CIA and FBI. His anger was directed at what he called the phony news about Russian interference in the 2016 election, which has long been proven to be real beyond the shadow of any doubt, and thanks to the tireless work of agents in these American intelligence agencies. However, the damage has been done, and the President continues his verbal assault. Agents are demoralized by what they perceive as a lack of confidence and a severe ack of leadership at many levels. How much damage remains? Why does the President name leaders that are unqualified for the job? And how have the Russians and Vladimir Putin benefited? Emmy Award winning journalist Ed Berliner is joined by veteran and former CIA Agent turned author and consultant Sam Faddis, as they tackle the hard questions and disagree on more than a few points. It’s another riveting conversation on the fastest growing interview show in podcasting, “The Man in the Arena”.

    The “N” Word: An end to white people’s use & black people’s misuse

    The “N” Word: An end to white people’s use & black people’s misuse

    There is not one single solo word in the English language that brings with it such passionate and angry discourse of racism and hate. Simply known as “the N word”, white people can’t understand why they shouldn’t be allowed to use it, and a section of black people can’t, or won’t  seem to understand the damage they do in making it part of their daily lexicon. Dr. Neal Lester has been teaching and speaking about the word for decades, educating people of every race about the history and the damage of this word. White people need to get a grip, and black people need to stop thinking there’s nothing wrong with their use of a word that has generations of evil intent. Join Emmy Award winning journalist Ed Berliner as he welcomes Dr. Lester to “The Man in the Arena” for a conversation that will ignite more than a few responses, and maybe even change some minds for the better.
