Former Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes once told Geraldo Rivera that the only thing in the middle of the road is road kill. Geraldo contends that there is more than road kill in the middle and the county needs a balance between the far left and far right, thus the “Roadkill with Geraldo Rivera” podcast was born.
Rivera began his 48-year career as a television reporter at WABC-TV in New York and was a member of the original cast of ABC's Good Morning America. He had an eight-year association with ABC's 20/20 as an investigative reporter and produced and hosted The Geraldo Rivera Show for 11 years. Prior to joining Fox News, Rivera served as host of CNBC's number-one rated prime time show, Rivera Live, where his critically-acclaimed coverage of the O.J. Simpson civil trial verdict set an all-time CNBC rating record. Rivera is a veteran foreign correspondent who has been on the frontlines of many international conflicts since 1973.
Geraldo is also a three-time winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, the Scripps Howard Foundation National Journalism Award and has received more than 170 awards for journalism, including the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, three national and seven local Emmys, and two Alfred I. duPont - Columbia University Awards. He is a graduate of the University of Arizona and Brooklyn Law School and is the author of eight books, including The Geraldo Show – A Memoir.
With the final Presidental Debate just two days away, there have been some last-minute changes- Including revamped topics and a mute button. Geraldo, callers, and Erica weigh in.
Where is the computer? Is it Hunter Biden's? The Democratic candidate for President would have an easier time in the waning days of the election if he could answer those questions. Bob Paduchik from the Trump campaign joins the program.
Since 2020 hasn't been normal by any stretch of the imagination, it seems right that we should have dueling, nationally televised town halls featuring both Presidental Candidates. Geraldo weighs in and takes your calls. Hogan Gidley from the Trump campaign joins the show.
The New York Post dropped a bombshell report revealing more connections between Hunter Biden, his Ukrainian buddies, and his dad. Worse yet, Twitter and Facebook are censoring the story. Geraldo weighs in and Trump Spokesperson Erin Perrine joins the show.
Is the GOP being responsible or are they packing the court? Speaking of packing the court, why won't Joe Biden answer any questions about his agenda if elected? Senator Rob Portman joins the show to answer those and many more questions about the latest edition of SCOTUS confirmation hearings.
The President was on Hannity last night, and he has defiantly sounded better. Geraldo asks what the point of live campaigning with an infected candidate. Steve Cortes from the Trump campaign and the GOP candidate for the Ohio 11th district LaVerne Gore join the program.

I like Geraldo and I think you may be as you say in the middle of the road for the most part, but I just don’t see it when it comes to Gun and gun laws.
I truly don’t see how taking guns away from law abiding citizens and disarming them can stop a maniac from killing people from time to time.
I’ve been to gun shows and I’ve been to gun stores and bought a gun at both places. Both times there was a background check.
I see the current push as a way to have a gun registry and with a gun registry this gives the government knowledge of where all of the guns are.
The problem with that is when some Socialist looney gets in office one day, what and who will be able to stop them if they become tyrannical.
The first thing a government like that would do is take the guns.
Once the guns are taken they can take away your rights and then your freedoms.
I wish you well with your podcast Geraldo. We need you to keep up the good work, but please also consider we have lots of gun laws and the vast majority of gun owners abide by those laws.
The evil criminals no matter how many laws we make won’t follow them because by name they are evil criminals and if they are willing to kill, they don’t mind breaking the gun laws.
Perhaps more psychological hospitals, maybe fewer violent movies and video games, which desensitize people to violence and a new push to get people back in the church and get the fear of God back in these people.
Love when you are on The Five! You’re better than Juan.
Don’t let the naysayers get you down man! You’re not stupid, you’re not incompetent and you’re a good journalist.
The others who left 1 star reviews don’t know what they are talking about and are obviously Democrats who don’t respect society and the way our country has been run.
If you don’t like what I say say it to my face I say.
Geraldo is GREAT!
Geraldo is a stand up guy and TOTALLY UNBIASED JOURNALIST. I just hate the title of the podcast. Not a good title. Wish the podcast was much longer!
