In the debut episode of “This Land Is Our Land,” OPB reporters Conrad Wilson, Amanda Peacher and former OPB reporter John Sepulvado take a closer look at the men and women charged with taking over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge earlier this year.

We dive into the motives of occupation leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and explain the events that led to the Sept. 7, 2016 trial.

We also talk about what’s at stake in this case for the government and the defense.
