WHAT: The Trump Administration was in large part defined by the chaos surrounding it – especially internally. The volatile rotation of staff often meant instability and near-daily internal leaks to the press. Now, the new iHeartPodcast “The Whistleblowers: Inside The Trump Administration,” co-produced with Best Case and Ark Media, will dive headfirst into the chaos to bring listeners the inside story of the people behind some of the most explosive government revelations in American history.
Host Miles Taylor will reach deep into the heart of power to bring listeners into the room – and into the lives – of the high-ranking officials and frontline public servants who tried to bring order to the chaos of the Trump years, while grappling with the most difficult decision of their lives: whether to openly speak the truth. They knew that doing so meant near-certain retribution, costing them their homes, jobs, marriages, safety – and – changing the course of history. Was it all worth it?
WHO: Miles Taylor is a bestselling author and the former chief of staff of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Taylor published a bombshell opinion piece in 2018 in the New York Times and himself became a whistleblower on presidential misconduct during the Trump Administration. He first wrote anonymously, but later revealed himself as the author after publishing the blistering national #1 bestseller “A Warning” in 2019.
His intimate knowledge of what it takes – and costs – to blow the whistle on highly sensitive matters gives a personal touch to the conversations he shares with fellow dissenters and guests of the show. Miles Taylor’s new book, Blowback: A Warning to Save Democracy from the Next Trump, will be published by Atria/Simon and Schuster on July 18, 2023. Pre-order copies here.
