What Do You Know?
After almost 100 years of living you’d be surprised what you might learn, especially if you’ve had the high privilege of knowing state secrets. Conclusions and insights drawn from those many years of experience are particularly valuable when they come from an iconic public leader like our guest, the Honorable Paul Hellyer, former Defense Minister of Canada, that nation’s longest-serving Parliamentarian. Hellyer has written 17 books and his latest, Liberation: The Economics of Hope deals squarely with the many overlooked and hidden realities that determine how our world works and for whom. Ellen talks with Paul Hellyer at length about what he’s seen, who he sees is really in charge of this planet, and how they shape our democratic future.
