Why Whistleblowers Stand Up To Evil

rebroadcast from 04-03-13

05/14/14 - Wednesday's Topical Currents is a rebroadcast: We see and read about tragedies and evil propagated by individuals . . . but it isn’t so often we hear about the unsung persons who take chances . . . even being disobedient and risking repercussions. We’ll speak with journalist and author Eyal Press, author of BEAUTIFUL SOULS:  THE COURAGE AND CONSCIENCE OF ORDINARY PEOPLE IN EXTRAORDINARY TIMES. What makes people go against the crowd, take chances, and face consequences? That’s a Topical Currents . . . Wednesday at 1pm.
