Description

Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers to the press knowing he could face the rest of his life in prison. But what turned this Cold War hawk into an anti-war dove? What were the motivating events and people who influenced his transformation? At 15, a tragic car accident would shape his sense of responsibility to the wider world. His time in the Marine Corps strengthened his dedication to serving his country. But in 1968 he would begin an unlikely encounter with another faction, the anti-war movement. Their dedication to serving the truth would lead Ellsberg to a massive act of dissent.

If you’ve watched The Post movie with Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, you know about the Pentagon Papers and the big risks newspapers took to get out the truth about Vietnam. But this podcast is about the man in the opening scene — Daniel Ellsberg — the govt insider who risked life in prison to tell the truth about the Vietnam war. He released the papers to the press. GroundTruth got exclusive interviews with Ellsberg and unprecedented access to his archives for this limited series.
