Description

Welcome to the NEW HOME of Mea Culpa – the ONLY place to find new episodes of Michael Cohen’s hit podcast. Cohen, the former attorney and personal “fixer” for Donald J. Trump, once vowed to take a bullet for the President. But that was before the country was brought to its knees by Trump’s lies and personal madness. While Cohen was imprisoned in his own home, with his life, reputation, and livelihood destroyed, he went on a mission to right the wrongs he perpetuated on behalf of his former boss. Mea Culpa with Michael Cohen, is a raw and unfiltered podcast that shines light into the dark corners of our current American Apocalypse. Tune in twice weekly for exclusive interviews and candid conversations with the New York Times best-selling author and self-proclaimed “gangster lawyer,” as he sets to dismantle the Trump legacy and uncover the truth… and nothing but the truth.

hey Michael I love the podcast. one thing that I can suggest, if I may. Let your guests speak , there are times that you cut them off , out of excitement. Let them speak, they are guests with knowledge. That's my only critique of the show.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the "Mea Culpa" podcast. The show's exploration of personal accountability and the art of apology is both insightful and thought-provoking. The host's ability to engage with a wide range of guests, from experts in psychology to individuals who've experienced public scrutiny, provides a multifaceted perspective on the topic. https://managementmania.com/en/personal/companies/kraft-paper-printer The podcast delves into the complexities of taking responsibility for one's actions and the different forms that apologies can take. It's crucial in a society that often demands accountability from public figures, and this podcast offers a valuable platform for discussions around this subject. https://www.fyple.co.uk/company/kraft-paper-printer-t8pb4tg/
