Our first guest is Fred Litwin the author of several books and has written articles for the National Post, The Ottawa Citizen, and The Toronto, among others. His 2015 book, Conservative Confidential: Inside the Fabulous Blue Tent details his journey from left-wing, anti-nuclear activist to becoming a gadfly in the right. Today he will be discussing his newest book On The Trail of Delusion: Jim Garrison: The Great Accuser.
The Trail of Delusion exposes the truth about Jim Garrison, the New Orleans District Attorney, who ‘solved’ the JFK assassination in 1967. Litwin had been interested in the JFK assassination since he was young, his latest book is the result of his incessant research into the topic, which debunks conspiracy theorists and proves there was only one gunman: Lee Harvey Oswald. Litwin is a marketing professional, who worked for Intel Corporation, and organized the launch of the Pentium II in Asia. In 2000, he founded Northern Blues Music, a cutting-edge blues label. The company has released over 70 CDs and has garnered 12 Juno Awards and over 40 Blues Music Award nominations. For more information visit his website at http://www.OnTheTrailofDelusion.com
