Jerry Springer hosts this podcast. He’s the son of German Jewish Holocaust survivors who got to England where he and his sister were born. His family moved to America when he was five.

Raised in New York, he received a BA in political science from Tulane University and a law degree from Northwestern University. He worked for Bobby Kennedy in his run for the Presidency, and then served ten years on Cincinnati’s City Council and as its Mayor. He was then an Emmy-winning main nightly news anchor on the NBC affiliate in Cincinnati for ten years before getting his current talk show. The Jerry Springer Show is currently in its 24th year of original broadcast. (Sorry!)
