"The Whole World Is Watching!"
Watch The Trial of the Chicago 7
The Official Trial of the Chicago 7 Podcast is an important supplement to the movie. "The [podcast] series features conversations devoted to the significance of events in 1968 and the trial, and the parallels with what’s happening in America today, as well as discussions with Sorkin and the actors and creative minds that realized the world of the film." You should be able to find it as a free podcast where you listen to them. In one of the episodes (all under an hour of time), Jill Wine-Banks, former Assistant Watergate Special Prosecutor, states, "We have to stand up and speak in defense of democracy no matter what the danger is because the danger of not speaking up is that we lose the democracy." Sound familiar?
