The Costa Report

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 big networks won’t. And delivers what big talk show hosts don’t. Host Rebecca Costa invites the world’s top newsmakers and thought-leaders to discuss civilization’s greatest threats for one full hour. No sound bites. No talking points. No editing. From government debt, healthcare and terrorism, to election, energy and education, no topic is off limits.

- Buzz Aldrin, astronaut
- Fred Barnes, political commentator,co- founder and editor of The Weekly Standard
- Mark Pryor, former Arkansas Senator
- Dana Milbank, columnist, The Washington Post
- Richard Perle, former Assistant Secretary of Defense
Rebecca Costa is an American sociobiologist whose unique expertise is to spot and explain emerging trends in relationship to human evolution, global markets, and new technologies.
Retiring at the zenith of her career in Silicon Valley, Costa spent six years researching and writing The Watchman’s Rattle: A Radical New Theory of Collapse. 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, rich or poor, educated or not, 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 appear to have lost our ability to solve our problems. The Watchman’s Rattle offers a genetic explanation for paralysis, and prescribes a way out.”
Raised in Tokyo, Japan, Costa lived during the Vietnam conflict in Vientiane, Laos, where her father worked in covert CIA operations. She attributes her ability to see the “big picture” to her cross-cultural education and upbringing. She graduated from The University of California at Santa Barbara with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Sciences.
