Lara Logan is a journalist and war correspondent.
Besides being one of the greatest journalists of our time, what makes Lara even more special is that, like me, she is South African. Which, of course, gives me the privilege to laugh at her funny accent.
Her résumé is impressive, from CBS, to 60 Minutes, to FOX; and her decades of war reporting – including Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Libya – have been both brilliant and brutal. For example, Lara was attacked by a mob, and beaten, and gang-raped, while covering the 2011 revolution in Egypt.
In our conversation, she chatted about
- missing being in South Africa;
- Trump understanding the working class;
- the essence of journalism;
- navigating the fog of war;
- fake news, narratives, and facts;
- being gang-raped and the will to survive; and
- the dangers of the post-Covid world.
Lara’s rape story is the most heart wrenching moment I’ve ever experienced on my podcast. God bless Lara for not giving up, and for being an inspiration.

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
