I’ve recently started listening to a podcast called, STAY TUNED WITH PREET by Preet Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney who fought corruption, financial fraud and violent crime, in a series about justice and fairness.
It’s not a political diatribe, though Bharara was a high profile US Attorney in a high-profile district who was told by Trump that he would retain his position immediately after the 2016 election, and then inexplicably fired him just a few months later.
Preetinder Singh Bharara is an American lawyer who served as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2009 to 2017. As U.S. Attorney, Bharara earned a reputation of a “crusader” prosecutor. According to the New York Times, during his tenure he was one of “the nation’s most aggressive and outspoken prosecutors of public corruption and Wall Street crime.” Under Bharara, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York prosecuted nearly 100 Wall Street executives for insider trading and other offenses. He reached historic settlements and fines with the four largest banks in the United States, and closed multibillion-dollar hedge funds for activities including insider trading.
Check out his new podcast.
It’s interesting, smart, and an excellent break from the typical podcast tedium.
