Michael Cohen served as Donald J. Trump’s attorney and “personal fixer” from 2006 to 2018. He took on tremendous responsibility while representing the former President and at one time even vowing he would take a bullet for him. However, after a brutal feud erupted between them, Cohen ended up biting the bullet and facing serious jail time. In his PodcastOne distributed podcast, Mea Culpa with Michael Cohen, which launched in September of 2020, the darkest elements of Trump’s presidency are revealed, all told by Trump’s former right hand man.
The podcast, with 9 million downloads to date, has featured a wide variety of guests, ranging from actors like Ben Stiller and Rosie O’Donnell, with whom Trump had a well-documented history of malevolence, as well as members of federal law enforcement and political scientists and consultants. Mea Culpa with Michael Cohen is available on PodcastOne, Apple, Spotify and wherever podcasts are heard.
