This episode investigative journalist Greg Palast joins us. Palast has been on the podcast before to talk about his book, “Billionaires and Ballot Bandits.” He joins us this episode to talk about what really happened with the Exxon Valdez oil spill, as well as the Deep Horizon oil spill that happened four years ago. Palast was part of the legal investigative team that reported on the Exxon Valdez oil spill back in 1989, and he’s here to talk about what really happened, BP’s huge role, and how all that connects to the Deep Horizon spill as well as other oil spills that are not reported in the mainstream media.
