Truth telling at its best

When Trump got elected, I was casting about for sane voices. After a few weeks mumbling, “Where is Ralph Nader nowadays?” I found this podcast. I haven’t missed an episode since, and learn so much every time. Ralph is a hero and I am so grateful he continues to give to the community in this and so many other ways. This podcast is insightful, bold, and fascinating. I wish the power brokers in every industry would subscribe. We’d have a much stronger democracy and healthier community. Thank you to the team who makes this podcast possible!
