Episode details

This week on Krystal Kyle & Friends, we chat with Matt Taibbi about being deported from Uzbekistan for criticizing its president, staying at a monastery, and playing professional baseball in Uzbekistan and professional basketball in Mongolia — but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

You’re probably familiar with Taibbi’s work with Rolling Stone, where he’s covered presidential campaigns from an outsider perspective, revealed the corporate evil at the heart of the 2008 financial crisis, and more. As Kyle mentions during our conversation, Taibbi’s fantastic writing captured the full picture of how Goldman Sachs dragged working people into financial peril — a picture that too few are willing to describe now, and even fewer were willing to describe then. We’re grateful to have someone who sees through the mainstream platitudes in order to deliver a clear vision of the monsters that the 99% is up against, and that’s why we’re so grateful to hear from Matt Taibbi.
