Ben Wikler was the founding producer of The Al Franken Show on Air America Radio and worked closely with Franken on his #1 bestsellers Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right and The Truth (With Jokes). He worked with MoveOn.org during the 2008 presidential campaign, and was a contributing writer for The Onion. He later served in the #2 roles at the world’s two largest online advocacy organizations: Avaaz, which he helped grow from launch to 10 million members, and Change.org, which more than tripled in size to 25 million users during his leadership. He has also worked for Senators Sherrod Brown and Russ Feingold and for Arianna Huffington and Jeffrey Sachs.
“Ben reminds me of myself when I was his age, except smarter, wiser, more worldly, better read, more passionate, much much taller, and just as funny.” — Al Franken
The Flaming Sword of Justice, with Ben Wikler is a new, topical, progressive talk radio program of politics, activism, and satire. Featuring interviews with leading politicians, high-profile campaigners, celebrated media figures, and cutting-edge comedians, mixed with Wikler’s unique blend of humor, insight, and infectious enthusiasm, The Flaming Sword of Justice is radio’s Colbert Report—except the host isn’t pretending to be right-wing. Sword brings listeners inside the fight for America’s future, giving them a behind-the-slingshot view of the David vs. Goliath battles for the heart of our country and the world—from the fight for Internet freedom to showdowns on Capitol Hill.
The Flaming Sword of Justice is powered by MoveOn.org, America’s flagship progressive advocacy group.
