Courage is very proud to announce the launch of the CourageSound podcast, which will start this Friday 1 June with a discussion of the case of Reality Winner. CourageSound will broadcast every two weeks on Radio Vendetta, with archives made available to listen back later.
Why a podcast? 2018 is shaping up to be a busy year with huge implications for our community. We want to bring you information about the big cases, the campaigns and the debates that are dominating our work. We’ll give you detailed takes on all of this, with discussions and interviews with those who know the issues best.
But more than that, we want to intiiate a discussion with you, because our work is only as good as our ability to represent what the community actually wants. We’ll announce the topics of broadcasts in advance and listeners will be able to send their input by contacting @couragefound or @radio_vendetta or sending us an email.
For our first episode, we’ll be discussing Reality Winner, who is just about to spent the first anniversary of her arrest in prison, where she awaits trial as the first whistleblower to be prosecuted by the Trump Administration. Hosts Naomi Colvin from Courage and Radio Vendetta’s Sonia Dietrich will be joined by US drone programme whistleblower Lisa Ling, who has been working closely with Reality’s family, and Kevin Gosztola who has been reporting on the court hearings to date.
