The Price of Conviction

9:00 AM GMT+1 on August 6, 2023

    The Price of Conviction - An informative and enlightening podcast that amplifies the lives of political prisoners who are serving time for standing up against authoritarian regimes. Their first series, of which there are so far three episodes out now, focuses on the story of Russian opposition political activist and journalist Vladimir Kara-Murza. Already poisoned twice in 2015 and 2017, he is currently serving a 25 year prison sentence after comments and activism against the Putin government.

    The podcast is hosted by international human rights lawyer ​​Yonah Diamond and comes from the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights. “The media is constantly covering authoritarian regimes from a point of acceptance and despair, resigned to eternal rule by dictators or war,” says Kara-Murza. “This podcast is about showcasing the alternative leaders who can pave the way for a better, more democratic and peaceful future.”
