Scott interviews activist and podcast host Misty Winston about the persecution of Julian Assange and those who are working to stop it. Winston first gives an update on what Assange is facing right now. They then talk about the letter from major publications like the Guardian and the New York Times calling for Assange’s release as well as Elon Musk’s popular Twitter poll. Scott and Winston find these developments hopeful and frustrating because of how long Assange has been maligned in the media while living under some form of custody. Lastly, Winston reviews the global network of activists campaigning for Assange and lays out how you can get involved in the effort.
