Pearse of PPR arranged this roundtable discussion with filmmaker Jon Ryman, inspired by his documentary White Widow: The Samantha Lewthwaite Conspiracy.  We discussed the mysterious case of Samantha Lewthwaite, from her birth in Northern Ireland to her marriage to alleged 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay, her departure for East Africa and the subsequent legend that has build up around her.  We explicitly discuss the possibility of her being an MI6 agent, or at least letting MI6 use her identity as cover for their black ops with Al Shabaab.  This in-depth conversation was a lot of fun to record and goes into many more topics than I can list here so it really is worth your time.
