David witnessed the way the Watkins father and son were railroaded in federal court, and he never left our side.

I had a great time today as a guest on the David "The Meck" Meckley Podcast show. Meckley and I have been close personal friends for two decades. He is a true and loyal friend.

David is also one of the last seasoned, fiercely independent, and credible journalists left in Alabama. The others, particularly those affiliated with the Alabama Media Group, sold out to Alabama Power Company many years ago. David's audience reaches more than three million people nationwide.

David's podcast is audio only. The interview was recorded in two parts. Here they are:

THE MECK PODCAST EXCLUSIVE (Part 1): DONALD WATKINS Unplugged on Southern Company, Alabama Power Company, Matrix, LLC, Joe Perkins, and Richard Shelby - Feb. 18, 2023

THE MECK PODCAST EXCLUSIVE (Part 2): DONALD WATKINS Unplugged on His Racketeering Complaint With the DOJ Against Southern Company - Plus How Southern Company Misled a Wall Street Analyst - Feb. 18, 2023.

I enjoyed being a guest on David's show. This exclusive interview was raw, candid, and wide open. I hope my listening audience enjoys this interview, as well.
