David Goldbloom and Friends: In Conversation with Michael Bromwich
In a series of candid conversations among old friends, former Chair of the Stratford Festival Board of Governors and Senior Medical Advisor of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health David Goldbloom sits down with some leading advocates of our time to discuss their work and their lives, and maybe to reminisce a little about their university years.
In Conversation with Michael Bromwich is today's feature topic. Michael R. Bromwich has been a federal prosecutor, a special prosecutor and Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice, along with many other prominent positions. He has been called on countless times - by public corporations, private companies, and senior government executives, including President Obama - to deal with issues and problems of the greatest private and public significance. He recently served as one of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers in the confirmation hearing of Justice Kavanaugh. His greatest achievement may have been surviving David as a roommate.
