Whitney Webb is a journalist and researcher who is known for her investigative reporting on topics such as surveillance, intelligence agencies and the connections between powerful people and organisations.
She has written for a variety of publications including The Last American Vagabond, MintPress News and Unlimited Hangout (which is her website).
Whitney first gained attention for her reporting on the Jeffrey Epstein scandal in which she uncovered evidence showing that Epstein was involved in intelligence operations for the United States and Israel.
She has also written extensively about the role of intelligence agencies in shaping world events including the CIA’s involvement in coups and regime change operations around the world.
In addition, Whitney has also written about the role of tech companies in surveillance and data collection as well as the use of facial recognition by governments and the role of Big Data in politics.
She is a respected and influential journalist and her work sheds light on the complex and often dangerous world of central intelligence and surveillance.

- her journey into journalism;
- moving to Chile;
- Bill Gates;
- central intelligence;
- Facebook versus mass surveillance;
- Jeffrey Epstein;
- 9/11; and
- why people fear conspiracy theories.
