  On the April 26th edition Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Sonia Kennebeck about her new documentary National Bird, which weaves together the chilling stories of three whistle blowers who break the silence around the secret US drone program.

They reveal damning details about innocent people who have suffered from mistaken drone attacks. One whistleblower is threatened with jail time and treason for speaking out. What do you want to know about the drone program? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
