In the first segment, journalist Dave Lindorff shares the little-known story of Ted Hall (1925-1999), a teenage science prodigy who worked on the WWII Manhattan Project, then shared his atomic secrets with the USSR, to ensure that the US wouldn’t be the world’s only possessor of nuclear weapons.
Then Dan O’Connell and Scott Peters speak about their new book, a collection of writings by scholars
who helped fight for the betterment of California farmworkers and farming communities.

Dave Lindorff is a veteran journalist and has written four books. His recent article about Ted Hall can be found at www.counterpunch.org/2019/08/09/remembering-ted-hall-and-klaus-fuchs
