Scott talks to Gabriel Shipton, the brother of Julian Assange, about the documentary he recently produced about his family’s fight for Assange’s freedom. Scott and Shipton discuss the film, what it portrays, who it features and why it’s called Ithaka. They then discuss some of the crimes Assange exposed, which would eventually land him in HMP Belmarsh as the world’s most famous political prisoner.
Discussed on the show:
- Ithaka (IMDb)
- Ithaka, a poem read by Sean Connery
