My guest today is astrophysicist, Josh Mitteldorf, co-author of Cracking the Aging Code: The New Science of Growing Old -- and what it Means for Staying Young, an election integrity activist and fellow Senior Editor at OpEdNews. His election reporting has covered censorship, taboos and at least one assassination.

Joan Brunwasser: Welcome, Josh! Most recently, you wrote a four-part series on election theft in the US, which exposed sordid backroom details and suppression of the truth. Please tell us where your interest in election integrity come from.

Back in 2004, I read an article in The Nation and a series* of New York Times columns by Paul Krugman [see list below], and I first became convinced that the voting machines that count America's votes were being deliberately misprogrammed.

JM: Yes--it's been quite an education. It was the politics of electronic voting that started me down a road of skepticism, doubting the New York Times and The Nation, which had been my primary news sources since my college days.
