"I’m an investigative reporter based in New York City. I currently produce and co-anchor >Let Them Talk on Manhattan Neighborhood Network, live Tuesdays at 8 PM on channel 56. Let Them Talk is an interview show with guests highlighting politics, art and culture. I’m also a member of the board of directors of the Yippie Museum at 9 Bleecker St. in New York City. The Yippies were founded in the 1960s by Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Paul Krassner, Stew Albert and others to bring a sense of humor to the anti-Vietnam War movement. Their creative capers included running a pig named Pigasus for President in 1968, organizing a protest to "levitate the Pentagon" and being beat up and arrested by Mayor R".—Paul DeRienzo
