Guest host Max Pringle spoke with filmmaker Abby Ginsberg about her new documentary on the life of East Bay Congresswoman Barbara Lee. The film is called “Barbara Lee: Speaking Truth to Power.”
It premiers in the Bay area on August 20 at the Shattuck Cinema in Berkeley and at the Roxie Theatre in San Francisco, as well as on demand.
Then, we re-air an interview with host Kris Welch and Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg. Earlier this year, he released another trove of formerly classified Cold War era documents that show that top Pentagon planners had a rather cavalier attitude toward a possible nuclear conflict over the fate of Taiwan. It’s an issue that’s still relevant given tensions between the US and China over the country.
