Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange – Ep 40
Being a whistleblower is a difficult path, one that only a few choose to follow. Chelsea Manning is one of those people, but the pain of her choice continues to haunt her in horrifying ways. Here, we discuss Chelsea Manning’s jailtime over her refusal to testify in a grand jury proceeding related to Julian Assange. We also discuss Assange’s recent loss of asylum by the Ecuadorian embassy and arrest by UK authorities.

The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny, Henri, and Keagan, three leftist combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.
