In this special episode, host and narrator Krista Smith presents conversations with three individuals intimately acquainted with the events surrounding “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and its aftermath. They include actor Troy Garity, the son of Tom Hayden (played in the film by Eddie Redmayne) who was a leader of the Students for a Democratic Society and later became an effective and highly respected California Senator and prolific author. And two of the actual defendants in the trial: Rennie Davis and Lee Weiner. Davis, also a leader in the SDS, and considered by many to be the greatest organizer of his generation, was a prominent figure in the antiwar movement. Sadly, Davis passed away earlier this year. Weiner, a community activist who served as a marshal with the National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam (Hayden and Davis were also co-directors of MOBE alongside David Dellinger), published his political memoir “Conspiracy to Riot” last year. Each of these individuals shared their feelings about the film, their reflections on the time, and what life looked like following the trial.
