Wendell Potter, "Nation on the Take" Author

Sometimes in life a little voice inside tells you, “You need to quit your job immediately, effective now and take on a brand new path.” Today’s guest, Wendell Potter, is someone who lived that. Wendell started as an insider in the insurance world. He worked for a big insurance company and had a moral dilemma about it. He believed that he was very much a part of the systemic problem that the healthcare world faces. He made a personal commitment to change his life and to change the status quo.

Since then, he’s gone on to be a consumer advocate, a journalist and a New York Times bestselling author. Now his latest book is called, Nation on the Take: How Big Money Corrupts Our Democracy and What We Can Do About It. In that book, he talks about how America has become coin operated. It’s a very timely book given the election, between the combination of wealth and politics. This is creating a corrupt system and we’re not dealing with the most pressing problems. How can we actually move the needle as consumers and as voters? Wendell is also the author of Deadly Spin and a regular contributor for Huffington Post and Healthinsurance.org.
