Jason Leopold: Investigative Reporter

A crusader for truth, or, as Karl Rove called him: “a nut with internet access”? Jason Leopold wanted to be a part of something, and that quest brought him through a labyrinthine world of decadent glam metal, dangerous mafioso, love, investigative journalism challenging the heights of government and corporate power, and the collisions of past and present.

Jason Leopold is lead investigative reporter at Truthout, and the author of News Junkie.

Produced by Sarah Lu, Nick van der Kolk, and Brendan Baker. Sound design by Brendan Baker, with musical contributions from Sun Hammer, C Yantis, Gangpol und Mit, and Trans Atlantic Rage.

Lots of extra help from Alexander Jerri. Isn’t he pretty?

Additional help from Lauren Whaley, Will Coley, Thandi Chimurenga, Kaitlin Prest, Audrey Quinn, and Chris–on loan from Benjamen Walker’s Too Much Information from WFMU.
