Preview: Public Official A

If you enjoyed listening to Making Obama, some folks here at WBEZ have another podcast for you. It’s also about politics, but this one is very different. Family drama, FBI wiretaps and -- ultimately -- a very long prison sentence dominate this story which even intersects with Barack Obama’s career.  Remember when the Governor of Illinois supposedly tried to sell President Obama’s Senate seat? Or, how the same ex-Governor got a “You’re Fired” from Donald Trump on The Celebrity Apprentice? New from WBEZ Chicago, Public Official A uncovers the rise and fall of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. How he did whatever it took to reach the top. The trail of destruction left in his wake. And how the complexities, charisma and tragic flaws of this public official resonate today. The first episode comes out January 18, 2019.
