"In Depth with Author and Journalist Chris Hedges" (video)

C-SPAN, video,(02:59:45):
On Book TV’s In Depth, author and journalist, Chris Hedges. The Pulitzer Prize winning foreign correspondent spends three hours taking viewers’ calls, emails and tweets on topics such as terrorism, religion and politics.

The National Book Critics Circle Award nominee has a Masters degree in Divinity and is the author of nine books. His works include, “War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning,” “Empire of Illusion,” and his latest release “The World As It Is.”
Howie P.S.: My father wrote his master's thesis in 1932 on James Joyce's "Ulysses" which Hedges puts on his favorite books list. I have yet to read or understand it. To give you the flavor and tone of this interview here's a quote from Hedges
Wall Street is a criminal enterprise.
