Coming up this weekend at SXSW in Austin are two insightful talks that you can live stream: one with CIA whistleblower Edward Snowden, and another with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. We'll embed video when the links are up.

On Saturday, March 8, SXSW will host Julian Assange's session via satellite video. Courtesy of the Texas Tribune, you can stream the conversation from 11:00am to 12:00pm CST. On Monday, March 10, Edward Snowden's session will be available for free replay via the ACLU at 11am.

"We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks" director Alex Gibney has a cool theory on how Assange, now a refugee of the Ecuadorian Embassy, in effect, turned Snowden in. By making himself the story and wanting the credit, Assange may have outed Snowden, forcing him to take refuge with the Soviets. 

We've interviewed Gibney extensively about his documentary expose, first at Sundance, and again in tandem with the arrest of whistleblower Bradley Manning, slapped with a harsh 35-year prison sentence. We also went behind the scenes with Gibney at his Jigsaw Productions (that story is here).

Stay tuned for video links to the live streams.
