Betraying the Nobel Peace Prize

Unni Turrettini, lawyer, speaker, consultant and author of Betraying the Nobel: The Secrets and Corruption in the Nobel Peace Prize, joins Carol Roth to talk about the secrets behind the prestigious prize. Unni and Carol discuss why Norway instead of Sweden awards the prize, how a president with little experience could be awarded such a distinction and whether President Trump has a shot at the 2021 prize award. Unni also shares the ins-and-outs of how the prize has moved away from its original purposes and what learnings we can take away more broadly in other aspects of media and politics.*

Plus, a “Now You Know” segment on a very cold natural anti-depressant.

*Note that this episode was recorded prior to the events of January 6th at the Capitol, and therefore the lack of reference to it and what has followed is because it had not yet happened.

     A fascinating conversation with a particularly brilliant woman. I must admit, though, that the thought of full immersion in freezing water, even very briefly, has no appeal at all.

    As to the Nobel Peace Prize, it has lost all value and become, like so many things in our modern world, a bauble for someone excelling in wokeness or an expert at virtue signaling. The last time it seemed to have any relevance was the Begin/Sadat joint award.

    You couldn’t repeat that on iTunes, could you? (Ending the shameless begging portion of our program…)
