This episode is a conversation between Tim and his co-defendant Karenna Gore, immediately after the surprising verdict in the West Roxbury, Boston, MA 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.
Director, Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary
