Truthtelling can be an act of resistance. Join Defending Rights & Dissent policy director Chip Gibbons as he brings you the stories of whistleblowers and other truthtellers who expose civil liberties and human rights abuses committed under the guise of national security and the attempts to silence them.
 
Conversations with the world’s leading historians, not just about what they do but how and (for goodness sake) why they do it. What drives them into dusty archives, motivates them through endless edits of books and keeps them always searching for history’s secrets? How did they come to find themselves neck-deep in the past in the first place? Led by historian Dr Joanne Paul (who isn’t exactly sure how she got there either), these are personal conversations with the real makers of history.
