Coffee Over Suicide # 112 - Doug Hughes

RELEASE DATE 01/07/2022

SEASON 5 premiere!

Doug Hughes is a retired mailman living on the Gulf Coast of Florida. In previous jobs, he’s been a restaurant manager, computer programmer, and he’s held a few dozen other jobs from mopping hospital floors to driving for Uber.

He made a daring and unauthorized flight in a 250-pound ultralight gyrocopter with 535 letters, one to every member of Congress, landing on the west lawn of the US Capitol Building in 2015. After proving his dedication, he demonstrated his expertise on the crisis of institutional corruption in dozens of media appearances and speaking engagements. The flight earned Doug four months in prison, it also cost him his job with the U.S. Postal Service and the gyroplane, a deal he does not regret.

Doug is an activist, especially but not exclusively on big money in politics, speaking, demonstrating, and writing on the subject whenever an audience will tolerate him.
