Episode 243: Rumble with Michael Moore

When you do what I do, you need someone in your corner who is willing to fight for you because the system is set up to make sure your voice isn't heard. Morton Janklow was one of those in my corner.

Today I honor my friend, and literary agent who passed away 12 days ago, just a few days short of his 92nd birthday. For the past 27 years, Mort fought to make sure my books were available to millions, and my words were left uncensored — despite some incredible odds.

Give a listen to my brief remembrance of what he meant to me and how he helped to save “Stupid White Men” from the Murdoch pulper.

— Mike
