24 EpisodesProduced by Christina MooreWebsite

The History of Now – Social commentary on modern life told with a touch of humor.


The History of Now (trailer)

Fraudsters fraud; corrupt officials corrupt resulting in the maltreatment of public funds and public trust. While not shaming I will continue to identify critical issues, flaws, and core problems. Yes, there are genuine crooks in the world employed as public servants. Alas, the complexity of the rules and poor communication invite unintentional mistakes as well. What can we together formant an environment where the crooks get spotted more quickly?

Three promises. First, I will remain apolitical and non-partisan. Second, I will strive for accurate and honest reporting. For my third promise, if I can’t be helpful, I’ll try to be funny. 

I will continue to write about what I know; therefore, I focus on U.S. federal agencies involved in funding communities through grant programs. My favorites are Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and especially FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Another favorite is local fraud – fraud within municipal and state government – especially in New England. What could possibly go wrong by looking closely at all of the data available ?

Each episode will be between 30 and 45 minutes. The script of the episode will be published in whole on my website:
