Episode 138: Miles Taylor

Former Trump administration Homeland Security official Miles Taylor

Show notes

Miles Taylor is a national security expert who served in the Trump administration as chief of staff at the US Department of Homeland Security, where he published an “Anonymous” essay in The New York Times, blowing the whistle on presidential misconduct. He later published the #1 national bestseller A Warning, revealed himself to be the author, and launched a campaign of ex-officials to oppose Donald Trump’s reelection. He’s worked as an advisor in the George W. Bush administration, on Capitol Hill, and as a CNN contributor. He is the author of the New York Times bestselling book, Blowback, and the host of the “The Whistleblowers” podcast.

Miles is a true patriot, is full of great stories and anecdotes, and is a pretty funny guy (come for his Trump impression, stay for the 'spooning'!)...all of which makes for an insightful, entertaining conversation. Miles takes us back through the surreal, chaotic, dysfunctional and dangerous Trump White House; the emotional and physical toll it took on him personally; and the existential threat the 4x-indicted GOP front-runner continues to pose to our democracy, especially should he become president again.

Miles also answers the one question no one else has asked him, and he reveals his favorite musical artists of all time!
