I recently had the pleasure of introducing a new friend to the edifying and entertaining oeuvre of Adam Curtis. For her, and others: a list of links that contain audio interviews with Curtis that haven’t appeared here in previous posts.

Transcripts from Bradley Manning’s Trial: Daily updates (this page shall be updated frequently)
Transcripts from Bradley Manning’s Trial
The US military has refused to release transcripts of Bradley Manning’s trial. In addition, they’ve denied press passes to 270 out of the 350 media organizations that applied. Without public transcripts or a press pass, it’s virtually impossible for media organizations to accurately cover the trial and for the public to know what the government is doing in its name.
In response, Freedom of the Press Foundation has crowd-sourced funding to place a professional stenographer in the media room covering the trial. We will post full transcripts shortly after each day’s proceedings end. The morning session with be posted by 7 pm the same evening. The afternoon session will be posted by 9 am the next morning. The transcripts will be released under a ShareAlike 3.0 Unported Creative Commons license.
Depending on how long the trial lasts, transcriptions will cost between $60,000-120,000, so please help support this project by going here to donate.
