020 – Free Daniel Hale: Whistleblowing and the Despicable Espionage Act

We talk about the woefully underreported story of Daniel Hale, who leaked The Drone Papers to the press, and was arrested under the Espionage Act in May 2019. We go on to discuss whistleblowers, dissent, the persecution of Eugene Debs, US drone programs, and more.

CORRECTION: The most successful third party run in US history was the Progressive Party in 1912, not Eugene Debs’ Socialist Party run during that same year.
