Power, Corruption & Lies
Trainspotters, detail obsessives and conspiracy theorists alike will appreciate our headline. It’s the title of New Order’s second studio album from May 1983. We think it fitting to use a provocative title that also ties in the groundbreaking Manchester band. After all, Manchester United are certainly one the world’s most well-known soccer clubs and they also happen to be a favorite of Robert Priest, Founder and Editor of Eight By Eight the dazzlingly creative and premier magazine devoted to the beautiful game. Robert joins the next edition of Life Elsewhere to help us understand all about the Power, Corruption & Liesthat brought FIFA and the unlikely-named Sepp Blatter into the world’s headlines this week.
Also in the program, former banker at J P Morgan, Michelle Millertalks about her debut novel, The Underwriting. A corporate thriller that takes place at Hook, an online dating start -up, where a high-stakes deal pitches the power of Wall Street against the savvy of Silicon Valley – until a young woman’s death threatens to topple it all.
