BETTE’S ‘SPEAKEASY’ ZOOM SALON — Sunday, Oct. 29, 4 pm PT
Please listen to RadPod’s latest Ep71, where we interview Jack A. Bryan about his new podcast ‘Lawyers, Guns, and Money’:
We also had a blast as Jack surprised our viewers on RadPod & Chill. You can check it out here.
Jack Bryan, director of Active Measures, American Psyop, and the new podcast series Lawyers, Guns, and Money — produced by Jack and Jon Cryer — will answer questions about his latest series and his work. Summary of LGAM here:
When Miami public defender John Mattes met his first felony defendant in 1985, what he heard pulled him into a world of danger and intrigue that would change the course of American history. His client, a Cuban American, had been arrested for having a machine gun as part of what he claimed was a CIA gun-running operation. After collecting a ragtag group of witnesses, including drug-running and mercenaries Mattes connects with a young Senator (John Kerry) as they follow a trail that leads directly to the White House.

What connects Jack’s work thematically is he reports on ongoing assaults on Democracy, and how today’s attacks are often rooted in history — a history where high-level criminals skated to come back and interfere with our democratic processes again.
If you have not yet watched his film ‘Active Measures’, I recommend you do before our meeting. I had this vital documentary on a 24/7 loop in 2018, and it is an important document of the Kremlin’s ongoing attacks on the West.
