Robbie and Abby Martin talk to journalist and managing editor of Shadowproof, Kevin Gosztola, about the extradition trial of Wikileaks’ founder Julian Assange. Kevin discusses the litany of trumped up charges he faces under the Espionage Act, Assange’s horrific treatment by the state and what the implications will be for journalists and the public at large if he is extradited and locked away by the US empire.
note: Abby had to step away in the 2nd half of the podcast which continues with Robbie and Kevin.
