About Dave Emory

David Emory is a polit­i­cal researcher and broad­cast­er whose Cal­i­for­nia-based radio pro­grams are heard on a reg­u­lar basis in the Unit­ed States, Cana­da and Europe.

Mr. Emory’s broad­casts focus on the U.S. mil­i­tary and intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty’s his­tor­i­cal involve­ment with inter­na­tion­al fas­cism. Research­ing such nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment abus­es as domes­tic and for­eign polit­i­cal assas­si­na­tions, and gov­ern­men­tal com­plic­i­ty with orga­nized crime and drug smug­gling syn­di­cates, Mr. Emory has dis­tilled his aca­d­e­m­ic research into an archival doc­u­men­tary for­mat. These “archive” pro­grams con­sist of excerpts from print­ed sources read dur­ing his broad­casts.

Mr. Emory’s pro­grams have been fea­tured on a reg­u­lar basis on Paci­fi­ca sta­tions KPFK (Los Ange­les) and WBAI (New York), and many small­er sta­tions. He has appeared as guest on major com­mer­cial sta­tions includ­ing KGO-AM (San Fran­cis­co) and WLUP-AM (Chica­go) and as an expert com­men­ta­tor on broad­cast out­lets in three con­ti­nents. Audio cas­sette copies of the archive pro­grams are also cir­cu­lat­ed inter­na­tion­al­ly.

Mr. Emory began his work dur­ing the Water­gate era when he not­ed numer­ous con­nec­tions between that scan­dal and the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy. Pur­su­ing his work on the JFK assas­si­na­tion, Mr. Emory dis­cov­ered Nazi Gen­er­al Rein­hard Gehlen’s East­ern front spy appa­ra­tus, and its incor­po­ra­tion into the CIA after World War II. This led Mr. Emory to study the ori­gins of fas­cism and its influ­ence on the con­tem­po­rary world.

Mr. Emory grad­u­at­ed from Amherst Col­lege with a B.A. in psy­chol­o­gy.
