The Costa Report is a post-partisan talk show for thinking people – citizens who don’t care whether a solution comes from the left, right, or center, so long as it works.

Each week The Costa Report goes where the other networks won’t. Rebecca Costa delivers what other “big-name” talk show hosts don’t. She invites the world’s top newsmakers and thought-leaders to discuss the challenges we now face for one full hour each week. No sound bites. No talking points. Each show is completely un-scripted and un-edited. From government debt, healthcare and terrorism, to election, education and energy reform, no topic is off-limits.

Rebecca Costa

Rebecca Costa is a sociobiologist who offers a genetic explanation for current events, emerging trends and individual behavior. A thought-leader and provocative new voice in the mold of Thomas Friedman, Malcolm Gladwell and Jared Diamond, Costa is the foremost expert in “Fast Adaptation” tracing everything from terrorism, debt, epidemic obesity and upheaval in the Middle East to evolutionary imperatives.

Retiring at the zenith of her career in Silicon Valley, Costa spent six years researching and writing The Watchman’s Rattle: Thinking Our Way Out of Extinction. In her book, Costa explains how the principles governing evolution cause and provide a solution for global gridlock. When asked why the book has special significance today, Costa claims, “Every person I know, wants to know why our government gets more in debt, our air and water more polluted, our jails more crowded, our security more tenuous and our children more violent. We seem to have lost our ability to solve our problems. The Watchman’s Rattle offers a genetic explanation for our paralysis, and prescribes a way out.”

The success of Rebecca Costa’s first book led to a weekly radio program in 2010 called The Costa Report. The Costa Report is currently one of the fastest growing radio programs on the West Coast.
