The Brothers Emanuel



HR 1

[REBROADCAST]EZEKIEL EMANUEL is the eldest brother of the current Mayor of Chicago and former White House Chief of Staff, and a powerful Hollywood agent immortalized in the HBO series, “Entourage” – Rahm and Ari Emanuel. Ezekiel is an ivy league bioethicist, who helped craft Obama Care, and an op ed columnist for The New York Times. In his new book, “The Brothers Emanuel: A Memoir of an American Family,” he tells the story of his family’s Russian immigrant past, and its fiercely ambitious legacy manifested in his parents and their sons. Marty talked to Emanuel earlier this spring.
