The Ralph Nader Radio Hour

Proxy Wars/ America Run Amok – The Ralph Nader Radio Hour – October 2, 2023

Ralph welcomes award-winning foreign correspondent Stephen Kinzer to discuss America’s bloody history of proxy wars. They’ll also discuss the mainstream media’s “shameful” coverage of the war in Ukraine, the warhawks on Capitol Hill, and the catastrophic trickle-down effects of American military meddling.


Stephen Kinzer is an award-winning foreign correspondent who has covered more than 50 countries on five continents. Mr. Kinzer spent more than 20 years working for the New York Times, most of it as a foreign correspondent. After leaving the Times in 2005, Mr. Kinzer taught journalism, political science, and international relations at Northwestern University and Boston University. He is now a Senior Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University and writes a world affairs column for The Boston Globe.


Ralph Nader talks about what’s happening in America, what’s happening around the world, and most importantly what’s happening underneath it all.
