Steve Poikonen, cohost of Slow News Day / the Free Assange online vigil series – Ep 79

Steve Poikonen, host of Slow News Day and co-host of the Free Assange online vigil series, joins us for a discussion on all things Julian Assange (FYI: this was recorded before the recent hearings on Julian’s extradition from the U.K.)  We discuss Steve’s view of NAFTA-driven neoliberalism in his childhood home of Elwood, IN, how the fallout from Chelsea Manning’s leaks made life better for all whistleblowers, even if just on paper, and of course, on the importance of Julian Assange’s actions as a publisher and how important unvarnished views of government activity are to activists who call out government criminality.
