EP 029 | Six Screaming Red Govt. Surveillance Flags That Got Ignored
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has given the FBI until Jan. 10, 2020 to come up with fixes to abuses flagged by the Dept. of Justice Inspector General. In light of the revelations about FBI misbehavior in surveilling Trump campaign associates in 2016, it's clear we ignored screaming red flags that told us government abuse was not only possible-- but was happening.

EP 023 | Impeachment Lesson: The Swamp Bites Back
People can debate what the public testimony against President Trump revealed. But I think it revealed how State Department diplomats unapologetically and brazenly substitute their own opinions and judgements for that of the president's.

After Hours EP 011 | Important Stuff You Didn't Know About Ukraine
I’ll bet this podcast reveals lots of things you didn’t know about Ukraine. According to combat veteran and combat journalist Nolan Peterson: There’s a shooting war going on today between Ukrainians and Russians. Ukraine doesn’t technically rely on US aid, lethal or otherwise, because they make so many of their own weapons. A temporary delay of US aid would have made no difference to Ukraine's day-to-day defenses in terms of weapons at their disposal. The reason Russia says it invaded Ukraine is not the real reason Russia invaded Ukraine. Foreign aid to Ukraine should be conditional and come with expectations. We also talk about the impeachment effort and President Trump's views on Ukraine. Listen to the podcast!. P.S. Check out Nolan Peterson's new book: Why Soldiers Miss War

EP 021 | Media Mistakes and What They Say About the Media Agenda
It's all the more important that we, as journalists, maintain strict ethical standards when we *don't* like or agree with the person we are covering.

After Hours EP 004 | MRI Dye Safety Risks: The Gadolinium Story
This is one of the few places you will be able to find important information on risks of MRI dye (containing the toxic chemical gadolinium). Since I began reporting on this topic on Full Measure, many of these dyes have been banned in Europe and Japan. However, the FDA in the U.S. decided to keep them on the market and, instead, issued new warnings. However, the new warnings are very difficult to find. Investigative producer David Bernknopf joins me for this podcast. Share with your friends and family who might be interested in MRI dye safety.

EP 016 | 2020 Polls... and a Walk Down Short-Term Memory Lane
At this time four years ago, Donald Trump stood just about where Democrat Tulsi Gabbard is: 1-2%. So why are some in the media pretending current polls reflect what will really happen in Nov. 2020? Are they using polls to try to shape public opinion rather than measure it?
