Pandemic Inc: Chasing the Thieves and Capitalist Who Got Rich While We Got Sick - David McSwane Grit Nation

    • Careers

Welcome to another episode of Grit Nation, I’m Joe Cadwell the host of the show and today I will be talking with investigative reporter David McSwane about his new book Pandemic Inc. – Chasing the Capitalists and Thieves Who Got Rich While We Got Sick. 
David’s book is an explosive look inside the rush to profit from the Covid-19 pandemic and connects the dots between shady backdoor deals and a robust spoils systems that led to a catastrophic mishandling of the pandemic. 
Pandemic Inc is a brilliant nonfiction thriller that takes us behind the scenes to reveal how traders, contractors and healthcare companies used one of the darkest moments in American history to fill their pockets. 
During our conversation David will introduce us to a host of characters he met while writing his story. From the fraudster who signed a million-dollar contract with the government to provide lifesaving PPE and yet came up with not a single mask to the Navy admiral at the helm of the national hunt for medical supplies.  
David’s roller coaster of a story takes us inside private jets and dirty warehouses as he seeks to expose the stranger than fiction criminal enterprise that played out in real time right before our very eyes.
