Cracking Corrupt Nuts - Ken Kendrick Story S3Ep2

Released Saturday, 6th February 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
This week, I sat down with Ken Kendrick, a Texas whistleblower who exposed that corporate wrongdoing that led to the 2008-09 salmonella outbreak that sickened hundreds of people (and killed at least nine).
His whistleblower story is so unique, and yet, it's a testament to how important it is that each of us support whistleblowers.
 When Ken blew the whistle, he wasn't even working at Peanut Corporation (PCA), but after seeing friends get sick, and knowing why from his previous job there, Ken risked everything to make sure the executives, who turned a blind eye, were held accountable.  He sacrificed so much, even at his own expense and frankly, sanity sometimes. The length that whistleblowers go to seek justice for others never ceases to amaze me and makes me proud to be a member of this club.
PeanutCorp America (PCA) went bankrupt after the 2008-2009 nationwide Salmonella outbreak killed nine people and sickened about 700. However, its head executive originally sentenced to over 20 years may have found a loophole to get out and enjoy the good life, while Ken struggles every day to make ends meet.
Life is not always fair, but thanks to whistleblowers like Ken, many people will still have the chance to live theirs...(albeit maybe peanut butter free).
