Scott Gilbert was featured on Stand Up! with Pete Dominick, a SiriusXM radio show hosted by stand-up comedian and politics enthusiast Pete Dominick and produced by Alfred Schulz, Melanie Starling, and Chris Hauselt. The interview discussed the agreement that the U.S. government made with the Iranian government to free four Americans, and a fifth prisoner in a separate deal, from Iran’s infamous Evin Prison on January 16, 2016. Mr. Gilbert discusses his involvement with the Hekmati family in dealing with Amir’s imprisonment and recent release, and the impact of this diplomatic effort as Iran takes steps to come to the world table and be more involved economically.
The focus of the three-hour SiriusXM Insight program each day ranges from current events, politics, environmental issues, veterans affairs to parenting.
“Our last guest was the DC-based attorney and founder & president of Reneo Consulting, LLC, Scott D. Gilbert. Mr. Gilbert worked with Cuban and U.S. officials to secure the release of American aid worker Alan Gross last year, and now his client Amir Hekmati has been released from 3.5 years in prison thanks to similar work between the U.S. and Iran.”
