Michael De Dora is director of the Center for Inquiry's Office of Public Policy and the organization's representative to the United Nations. We had a chance to chat via Google Hangout (which can be watched below) a few months ago and I was surprised to learn a few new tidbits about his background. We talked about his time working for Fox News (yep, you read that correctly), his conversion from Catholicism and his work on Capital Hill trying to sway legislators with sometimes unpopular viewpoints.
