In this edition we uncover the story of the most controversial whistle-blower of the 21st Century – Edward Snowden.

The 2016 Oliver Stone drama Snowden is the true story of how one insider leaked thousands of classified documents to the press, uncovering illegal and frankly unbelievable surveillance technique used by the American government. Joseph-Gordon Levitt plays the lead with strong support from Shailene Woodley as his girlfriend Lindsey Mills. Around Snowden is a floating set of characters played by some incredible actors such as Zachary Quinto, Rhys Ifans, Nicholas Cage, Tom Wilkinson and Joely Richardson, to name but a few. Here we speak to Joseph-Gordon Levitt.
