"Live With Megyn Kelly": interview with Putin, an opioid company whistleblower, a woman who stops elephant poachers in Africa


Live With Megyn Kelly” premiered on NBC Sunday night at 7 PM, best link.

She interviewed Vladimir Putin, and the broadcast showed beautiful shots of St. Petersburg, Russia.  Putin denied interfering with the US, said he doesn’t care who is president, and says the US NSA interferes with other countries.
 


She then interviewed a whistleblower who uncovered “fraud” in the company that sells Fentanyl, an opioid that can be delivered under the tongue, but that is potentially fatal from accidental exposure, even to the skin.

She also interviewed a woman pursuing poaching of elephants in Kenya.  She showed a safari on a dirt road that became almost impassable, even to four-wheel drives, after an average thunderstorm. She also showed the sociable nature of the animals and the way they raise their young.  Elephants are the most intelligent animal that does not eat meat, and can recognize themselves as individuals in mirrors  Their intelligence is similar to that of carnivores (dogs, cats) or even superior, perhaps more like that of cetaceans.

My novel manuscript (“Angel’s Brother”) has an early sequence where a lead character visits St. Petersburg, then Lagoda, and “escapes” through Finland prompting an international incident.  Something like this could really happen.
