Groceryships: A Story of Wall Street Greed and Main Street Redemption


(00:00) Sam Polk wrote a letter to the editor at the New York Times and created a national sensation. He gave us permission to read his powerful story in its entirety on the show. He then joins us to talk about his story. He traded derivatives on Wall Street and made millions. Then he realized his pursuit of wealth was an addiction – just like drugs or alcohol. He saw what his addiction did to him. He quit and walked away from millions of dollars. He started to help poor people with nutrition and access to healthy food. I promise you will never forget this show.

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.
