WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, currently under house arrest in the UK, will be hosting an English-language talk show on RT, a Moscow-based channel formerly known as Russia Today.
Called “The World Tomorrow”, the TV show will have Assange interviewing “key political players, thinkers and revolutionaries”. Assange’s show is expected to kick off around the middle of March, and ten 30-minute episodes will be aired every week.
RT is keeping a tight lid on the specifics, such as Assange’s guests and the talking points, but the network did drop a few hints on what we can expect. According to RT, Assange will “get to talk about the issues of the day with those he believes will shape the world tomorrow”.
Assange himself also shed a bit more light on his TV show in a statement posted on WikiLeaks. He said:
“Through this series I will explore the possibilities for our future in conversations with those who are shaping it. Are we heading towards utopia, or dystopia and how we can set our paths? This is an exciting opportunity to discuss the vision of my guests in a new style of show that examines their philosophies and struggles in a deeper and clearer way than has been done before.”
