Incredibly insightful and balanced
This is the best political science/current events/foreign affairs/historical podcast on iTunes. I'm genuinely surprised that no one has written a review! In any case, each episode is insightful and thought-provoking. The speakers and panels discuss the biggest political and social challenges facing our country and world. One of its best features is that it is very balanced, politically. I can't recommend it enough!
A must for anyone interested in current affairs.
These podcasts are sure to be a valuable asset to anyone interested in the mechanisms of US foreign policy. Renowned academics and policy makers from the US and abroad discuss everything from the financial crisis to AIDS in Africa. Few other places offer the average person access to such timely and profoundly important information.
How's Goodluck Johnathan?
I enjoy hearing the Sophisticated
side of policy making. The folks at
The CFR are game theory revisted,
with the calculations and predictions
endless. They are on their game, tho.
Their ideas favour a convergence
in policy and trade, which I, and many
others, aren't rooting for. Besides that,
... what podcast is their peer? Is there
another NGO of credibility podcasting?
Thank you, CFR...
