Preet Bharara is the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, which made him one of the most powerful lawyers in America. Preet was the first Indian-American ever appointed U.S. Attorney in that district.
After being fired from that job by President Trump, Preet began hosting a podcast, “Stay Tuned with Preet,” on which he explores issues of justice and fairness with his guests. Preet is also a CNN commentator, teaches at NYU Law School, and is almost done with his first book.
Preet talks with Bassem about growing up in two cultures, prosecuting criminals and hosting a podcast, among many other topics. At the end of the episode, Bassem and Preet answer listener voicemails together.
