Slate podcast: Birgitta Jónsdóttir explains what Iceland’s Pirate Party is all about


(Tom Randle) #1

Starts from about ~6mins.

“Birgitta Jónsdóttir has an unusual background for a politician: She’s a poet and a free-speech activist. Since 2013, she’s been a member of the Icelandic parliament representing the anti-establishment Pirate Party. Jónsdóttir talks to Mike about what it’s like to work within a fledgling political party and why she’s disappointed with what WikiLeaks has become.”
