EP.98 - MAYA FOA

Adam talks with Maya Foa, the director of Human rights charity Reprieve, about the questionable efficacy of the death penalty, torture, Jack Bauer, drone strikes, why Obama should have watched 'Dave' starring Kevin Kline, and whether I could get out of Guantanamo.

Reprieve is a nonprofit organisation of international lawyers and investigators whose stated goal is to "fight for the victims of extreme human rights abuses with legal action and public education".

Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support and to Matt Lamont for additional editing.

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes

Adam
