    He's Glad He Was There

    He's Glad He Was There

    Former Chicago Police Superintendent, Garry McCarthy, joined the NYC Police Department at age 22. He worked his way up to Deputy Commissioner of Operations and got to the World Trade Center as the 2nd plane hit the South Tower. He was there when the Towers collapsed and lost many friends, but in our conversation he explains why he's glad he was there. On this episode he tells a very compelling story of that day and remembers some of the heroic first responders on 9/11.

    SHOW NOTES
    The Feal Good Foundation is named for its founder, John Feal, a U.S. Army veteran and retired construction worker. John was called to lead a team of demolition experts work the pile at Ground Zero. A steel beam fell on his foot resulting in injuries, surgeries, and big medical bills. He was denied coverage again and again. His experience led him to start the FealGood Foundation to help all emergency personnel who are injured doing their jobs in all areas of their needs.

    Jon Stewart fought alongside Feal to get financial help and get the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act passed and reauthorized and hammered Congress to act, telling a poorly attended hearing...

     “It’s an embarrassment to the country and it is a stain on this institution. You should be ashamed of yourselves, for those that aren’t here, but you won’t be."  He closed by saying, “They responded in five seconds. They did their jobs with courage, grace, tenacity, humility..
    do yours.”

    The Hard Truth About Afghanistan

    The Hard Truth About Afghanistan

    Mark Doyle was embedded with US forces in Afghanistan for a year. It changed his life and gave him a clear eyewitness view of what we were doing, undoing, and failing at on the ground. The troops he met did their jobs with honor and met the mission daily. The mission was the problem.
    We had to go. We should not have stayed.
    Hear him here with what remains the best explanation of why Afghanistan cannot be "saved" by US.

So Great to hear you again, Steve!

Really miss you and so many others who are gone from a once great station.

I especially enjoyed your chat with the magnificent Patti Vasquez, one of the most wonderful people on the planet!

Steve, I sympathize with you about how painful knee replacement surgery is. I had my left knee replaced a few years ago, and it was even worse in my case because my knee had also gotten twisted and had to be forced straight.

I hope that your recovery and physical therapy are both going well.

Thanks for the podcast. It’s really terrific!

Just listened to your very powerful interview with Patti Vasquez, and I just wanted to say that she is an incredibly brave and remarkable person.

Mary Nagelvoort ,

Ready to hear the next 100!

Great show Steve. You bring the topics of interest and controversy to us with your guidance and humor. Thanks.

Love the show! Steve you always ask Dr Most to affirm that you don’t get the flu from flu vaccine but you don’t ask if the vaccine can trigger underlying problems auto immune issues.
