Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin is known for “The West Wing,” “The Social Network” and Broadway’s, “To Kill a Mockingbird.”

Fifteen years ago, Steven Spielberg asked him to write a movie about the Chicago 7 – Vietnam War protestors convicted and later acquitted of conspiracy and intent to incite a riot outside the 1968 Democratic Convention.

That film, “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” debuted in 2020.

Writer and director Aaron Sorkin joined us to talk about it.
