Salon Inteviews Josh Wolf: First Amendment Martyr?

Josh Wolf

Alex Koppelman interviews Josh Wolf for Salon: “First Amendment martyr?” He asks Josh about life in prison, journalism, being a martyr, and of course the “video”.

What was prison like?

It was very boring. Lots of time spent reading. I read about 50 books. I wrote about 1,000 letters responding to the people who were writing me. And then I spent the rest of the time eating, playing some trivial game like dominoes or Spades, and talking to the prisoners about how they got there and what their thoughts on the American landscape are.
