LISTEN: Filmmaker Robbie Martin Discusses Rise Of Neocon Movement After 9/11

On February 18, Daniel Wright talked with filmmaker Robbie Martin about his documentary series, “A Very Heavy Agenda” during a livestreamed Shadowproof Event.

For one hour, Wright and Martin discussed how the film series tackles the rise of the neoconservatives after 9/11, which stoked public fears of another terrorist attack to further their agenda for regime change and interventions abroad. The two also discuss the rise of a new, younger line of neocons permeating the media landscape today.
