Bullets On The Brain
Getting the Story at Gunpoint - the Life and Times of David Holthouse
Whether rubbishing a hip-hop band or infiltrating white supremacists, investigative reporter David Holthouse has faced and held a lot of guns.
From almost his first professional feature he’s been shot at, threatened, taken into hiding by police, nearly abducted by right-wing militias and, in his most famous piece, Stalking the Boogeyman arrested after publishing a plot to murder his childhood abuser.
Consequently, David Holthouse is that rare thing: a gun-control advocate armed to the teeth. Today we feature the life and times of this remarkable and brave individual. The last of a rare breed of undercover journalists who risk their lives not only to get the story but to expose America’s many monsters to the light of day. Lock and load– it’s time to get Gonzo!
Presented by Peter Cox, Ali Gardiner, Dave Bartram and Ian Winn.
