Wisdom, Courage, and the West Roxbury Climate Trial with Karenna Gore

This episode is a conversation between Tim and his co-defendant Karenna Gore, immediately after the surprising verdict in the West Roxbury pipeline resistance trial. They discuss their experience of civil disobedience that led to the trial and the ground-breaking result of an acquittal by reason of the necessity defense.
