Scott Brody grew up in a political home in New York, where the older generations met, supported candidates, and argued about politics.
In the ’60s, a teenage Scott Brody joined in the political and cultural ferment of the time. He marched against the war in Vietnam, listened to Jean Shepherd on WOR and WBAI until all hours, read Ray Bradbury and Ramparts. The summer he graduated from high school, he went to Woodstock.
Scott Brody spent a few years in a political group similar to the one fictionally depicted in “The Org.” In 1976, after graduating college, he ran for Congress on the US Labor Party. After that, he got into broadcasting—a career he still pursues, managing radio stations in Southern California and New England.
Scott Brody is happily married, has a daughter and two sons, and is the proud grandfather of a baby boy. He resides with his wife, Judy, in Southern California.
