🎧 Anti-government Violence in America
🎧 Dan Snow's History Hit • 19m
Leah Sottile joins me today to talk all about domestic terrorism and anti-government groups in the USA.

Leah Sottile is a freelance journalist and writer based in Oregon and the host of the podcast Two Minutes Past Nine, produced with BBC Radio 4, and the series "Bundyville," made in collaboration with Longreads and Oregon Public Broadcasting.
