In 2017, Reality Winner, a highly decorated former Air Force linguist was arrested by the FBI for leaking proof of Russian interference in the 2016 election to the media. Her goal ? to help protect Democracy. Reality received the longest sentence ever imposed for unauthorized release of government information ? five-years, three-months.
In the initial six episodes, Hosts Dori Berinstein and Sally Horchow, capture the unfolding events of the interrogation, the trial, the imprisonment and the current efforts to pursue clemency with those that were ?in the room? where it all happened.
And now, in this 7th episode, they begin a ground-breaking, multi-episode interview with Reality Winner herself. For the first time, Reality is sharing her incredible story.
This is Reality, capturing the story of NSA whistleblower Reality Winner, was recently recognized as New & Noteworthy by Apple Podcasts.
