LIVE FROM MOSCOW: Edward Snowden

Since 2015, Open Mic has brought former CIA employee and National Security Agency (NSA) consultant Edward Snowden’s compelling story and cautionary voice to audiences around the world. The author of the new memoir, Permanent Record, Snowden risked everything to expose the U.S. government’s system of mass surveillance. He is the subject of the Oscar-winning best documentary Citizenfour and the critically acclaimed Oliver Stone film, Snowden. Appearing live from Moscow, Snowden continues to speak out about technologies and practices (increasingly by nongovernmental entities) that have created “the most effective means of social control in the history of our species.”
