Inside Ideas- A Conversation with Carey Gillam
“It is a story of corporate malfeasance on a grand scale – a chilling revelation of the chemical industry’s greed, arrogance and reckless disregard for human life and the health of our planet.”
That words of Phil Landrigan, founding director of Boston College’s Global Public Health Program, on Carey Gillam’s brand new book hot off the press today: The Monsanto Papers. Which makes it a real scoop for Inside Ideas to have Carey, whose lifelong quest has been to ‘build a career on the simple pursuit of truth’, join me on today’s show to talk about the book.
“My work is based on the belief that by sharing information and ideas, airing debates, and unveiling actions and events critical to public policy, we help advance and strengthen our community — our humanity,” Carey said.
