Interviews with top political activists, history buffs, lawmakers, whistleblowers and everyday voters.
Where's the Money?
Back in October 2019, a video posted by an old school friend popped up on my Instagram feed. In this video, he was sat on the shoulders of another friend, leading chants in Lebanese asking, ‘Where’s the money?’, surrounded by a crowded street of protestors in London who were holding up Lebanese flags and banners. This school friend was Joseph El Kadi, a 23-year-old Lebanese student who is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Cambridge. My interest peaked when I saw the video, but with the pressures of work taking a toll and the lack of media attention surrounding the issues in Lebanon, I liked the video, pushed my interest in the video to the back of my mind, and kept scrolling.
Talking Equal Rights and Social Justice with David Thibodeau
This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Waco survivor and humanitarian, David Thibodeau! We discussed all things Waco, Black Lives Matter, and equality. David’s story and his humanitarian work are very inspiring, and I hope that you enjoy our interview as much as I enjoyed it!
David Icke BANNED Covid-19 Interview
David Icke‘s original interview with London Real was taken down by YouTube mere hours after it streamed live to hundreds of thousands of viewers.
Talking with Andrew Yang, Our Best Hope for 2020
The 2020 Democratic Primaries are currently crawling with candidates hoping to face off against Donald Trump for the presidential bid, but one candidate stands out among the crowd, lurking in the background, and he won't be for long.
Islamic Center of Peekskill Blends in on North Division Street
When our political discussions turn to foreign policy, the Middle East almost instinctively moves to the forefront of contention. "That's the reality of our times," said Papa Sall, Imam of the Islamic Center of Peekskill. But seismic shifts in today's human events do not take precedence over a permanence found in the message the Senegal born holy man has for his flock.
What Progress Has NYSEG Made Since Irene and Sandy?
I wrote this in 2012. I thought it would be interesting to look back and see if we’ve made any progress in terms of NYSEG, the town's response to storms and power outages
Judge Harold L. Wood of Somers Has Made a Life of Making a Difference
I often go into an interview with a preconception of where the story will go. I’m usually wrong. In the case of 93-year-old Judge Harold Wood, who was the first African American Supervisor in Westchester, I was once again right about being wrong. I thought I would learn of insurmountable obstacles overcome in receiving his law degree, tales of harrowing racial discrimination, and a detailed accounting of his professional life. Admitting up front that his memory has “dimmed” in recent years derailed the in depth look I was hoping for. But that doesn’t mean his sketchy outline of the past prevents him from processing. The same goes for his ability to inspire. So while he’s self-assured of his extraordinary historical accomplishments, it is the manner in which Judge Wood perceives himself as ordinary that really makes him stand out.
Puerto Rico: Statehood or Independence?
Recently, I had the pleasure of talking to Julio Ricardo Varela, a Puerto Rican political journalist and advocate of a shared agreement approach to the future of the place of his birth and upbringing.
Conversation with Robert Kennedy Jr.
It is no secret that we are currently in an unprecedented environmental tailspin. Carbon levels are rising dangerously, the polar ice caps are melting, and species are rapidly disappearing etc. While the rest of the world has taken steps to mitigate the damage humans cause the planet, The United States has taken a cynical and irresponsible path towards climate change.
Interview with John C. Bednar, Author of 'The People's President'
Author and professor Dr. John Bednar first began writing his political thriller The People's President in the early 70s. His book–written in the scandalous milieu of Watergate and the Vietnam War–posed a fictional and righteous reality in which politics and money did not mix. Bednar's writing was a understated form of protest, a caution against the burgeoning Washington swamp and what he perceived as a gross miscarriage of a democratic electoral system. His book was first circulated among his colleagues and students and was received well; Bednar's ideas resonated with his readers and laid dormant, marinating, for decades to come.
