Scott talks with Kevin Gosztola about a project he’s working on documenting the lead-up to Iraq War II as well as his brand new book about Julian Assange. To mark the twentieth anniversary of the disastrous invasion of Iraq, Gosztola has been writing about each day since mid-February, documenting the lies that the Bush Administration and their allies pushed exactly twenty years ago to the day. Scott and Gosztola talk about some of those lies before moving on to the current lies being told about Julian Assange. Gosztola talks about why he wrote this book and what sets it apart from some of the others already out.
