CORRUPTIBLE Who Gets Power and How It Changes Us

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Brian Klaas

Contemporary Culture • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

"Does power corrupt, or are corrupt people drawn to power?" asks political-science writer and "Power Corrupts" podcaster Brian Klaas as he narrates his fast-moving examination of why so many leaders become ruthless tyrants. His professional-sounding appeal and enthusiasm will engage listeners with the stories and insights he shares. What Klaas found from interviewing leaders around the world is that while some corrupt people seek power, ordinary people can also become corrupt because of the culture they inhabit and the system they must operate in. Klaas's vocal charm and lucid insights will encourage many listeners to question their own roles in creating despots: Why are so many of us drawn to leaders who are ruthless, corrupt, and blatantly self-serving?
