Book Hour: “The Fine Print: How Big Companies Use Plain English to Rob You Blind” with David Cay Johnston


(00:00) Your phone bills, utility bills, and internet charges have little charges that add a few dollars here and a few dollars there but they add up to over $2,400 per year per household. The regulatory agencies that were established to protect us are allowing the rip-offs to occur. The result? The most expensive cable, phone, and internet service in the world that is the 29th fastest. The result? Pipelines and utility maintenance that is not being performed while profits are sent overseas. The list is great. So should be the outrage.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
