Kevin Gosztola of Firedoglake.com and Rania Khalek, who publishes the "Dispatches from the Underclass" blog, interview Kade Crockford, a director for the Technology for Liberty Project of the ACLU of Massachusetts. We discuss what is known about how all levels of government in the United States use surveillance capabilities or tools to target activists as if they are terrorists.
Following the interview portion of the podcast, Khalek and I discuss Sodastream and Scarlett Johansson and a couple of very disturbing cases where cavity searches by police allegedly occurred. Then, I read from some transcripts of court proceedings in the 'NATO 3,' giving listeners a flavor for what it has been like to be in the courtroom doing coverage.
