Guest: Christian Stork

On this edition of Traces of Reality Radio: Guillermo is joined by investigative reporter for WhoWhatWhy, Christian Stork.  Guillermo and Christian discuss the case of Barrett Brown, an “eccentric” journalist whose work through Project PM investigating the connections between the national security state and private intelligence contractors led to his arrest and a potential prison sentence of over 100 years.

We discuss Brown’s work and how he became a target of the FBI, how Project PM exposed HB Gary and Romas/COIN, the State Department and their use of “persona management software” and social media “sock puppets,” his working relationship with fellow journalist Michael Hastings, and much more.

Update: 09/18/13 from Christian:
