Tune in today at 1:00pm EDT to Honesty Without Fear on Progressive Radio Network.
In the first half hour, Michael Kohn interviews Jim Bobreski, an Instrument and Control Technician who blew the whistle on the District of Columbia's water department for intentionally disabling the safety alarms on chlorine tanks kept within a mile of the U.S. Capitol. In 2005, a Department of Labor judge ruled that Mr. Bobreski was illegally fired, and that the District's Water and Sewer Authority was responsible for causing his discharge. Hear about his struggle to protect public health and safety.
In the second segment, Richard interviews Robert M. Danno, a whistleblower at the National Park Service (NPS). Mr. Danno is a decorated Park Ranger whose career was stunted after objecting to the destruction an NPS forest just to give Redskins owner Dan Snyder a better view of the Potomac River from his luxury home in Maryland. Mr. Danno discusses his experience, which is the subject of his new book, Worth Fighting For: A Park Ranger's Unexpected Battle against Federal Bureaucrats & Washington Redskins Owner Dan Snyder. Read a review of the Mr. Danno's book by the Association of National Park Rangers.
