From The Civil War To The Middle East w/ Professor Sean Wilentz and Indira Lakshmanan

February 1, 2024

In This Episode:

James and Al break down the border battle and skewer Republican attacks on Taylor Swift, before welcoming historian Sean Wilentz.  They discuss the best media practices for covering Trump, recent parallels to the Civil War, the role the SCOTUS plays in maintaining our democracy, and how to put an end to Trump’s rolling coup.  Then, James and Al are joined by AP’s Global Enterprise Editor Indira Lakshmanan to lay out the Iranian threat, and explore how the Middle Eastern nations relate to one another, Israel’s internal politics, and the next phase of the Israel-Hamas war.
