A Conversation with Edward Snowden

12-5_snowden_web.jpg

Saturday, Doug sat down with Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who leaked highly classified documents, setting off an intense debate about privacy and surveillance. Snowden, who joined us by way of video feed from Russia, has been hailed as a hero by some and labeled a traitor by others for his actions. Monday, we’re broadcasting our conversation about his early influences, his response to critics, his views on technology, and why he says surveillance does nothing to make us safer.

This event was presented by the Park City Institute. More information at ecclescenter.org
