With the current state of politics in Washington DC and turmoil in many parts of the world, now is the perfect time to hear from former White House Chief of Staff, former Director of the CIA and former Secretary of Defense, and the man who has been called, “the consummate straight shooter.”
Like his career, Worthy Fights is a reflection of Panetta’s values. It is imbued with the frank, grounded, and often quite funny spirit of a man who never lost touch with where he came from: his family’s walnut farm in Carmel Valley, where as boy, he worked alongside his father and brother. With typical candor and humor, he recalls that his father often told him that he was well trained for a career in Washington as he'd been "dodging nuts" since childhood.
A young Panetta was appointed the Director of the Office of Civil Rights in 1969 where he was responsible for enforcing equal education laws during a tumultuous time in American education. He went on to represent Monterey county in Congress for 16 years, followed by positions as Budget Director and White House Chief of Staff under President Clinton, bringing a focus on policy and stability to the White House . In 2009, coming out of "retirement" Panetta accepted what many said was a thankless task, returning to public office as the Director of the CIA during a time of turmoil, then serving as Secretary of Defense, inheriting two troubled wars in a time of austerity and painful choices.
Leon Panetta served as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2009–2011, and as secretary of defense from 2011–2013. An Italian American Democrat, he was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1977–1993, the director of the Office of Management and Budget from 1993–1994, and President Clinton’s chief of staff from 1994–1997. He is the founder of the Panetta Institute for Public Policy, and has served as professor of public policy at his alma mater, Santa Clara University.
Jim Newton is editor at large of the Los Angeles Times, where he has worked for twenty-five years as a reporter, editor, bureau chief, and columnist. He is the author of two critically acclaimed biographies, Justice for All: Earl Warren and the Nation He Made and Eisenhower: The White House Years.

A former NFL cheerleader and daughter of Cuban immigrants who grew up in Miami, Mireya Mayor followed her unlikely dreams. In short order, she became a respected primatologist, audacious explorer, and Emmy Award-nominated wildlife correspondent for the National Geographic Channel. Mireya has survived poisonous insect bites, been charged by gorillas and chased by elephants- and keeps going back for more. On a National Geographic-supported expedition in Madagascar in 2000, Mayor discovered a rare new species of mouse lemur, then believed to be the world's smallest primate. Her discovery inspired the prime minister of Madagascar to establish a national park to help protect the new species, conserving the 10 percent that remains of the African island nation's once vast forest. Currently hosting the Nat Geo WILD series Wild Nights With Mireya Mayor, Mayor has been hailed as a "female Indiana Jones." and an inspiration to young women interested in science and exploration. She'll share stories, images, and film clips of her adventures, offering a behind the scenes look at the hardships and danger of life in the field, along with he moments of discovery that make it all worthwhile.
