2021 Foreign Policy Predictions – Ep 91

KBOO listeners:Click here to finish episode.

(1-23-21: Our podcast hosting server had some issues yesterday and early this morning.  There’s still issues streaming the episode through iTunes, but it will now download and can be heard streaming on our website.  Apologies for the inconvenience.)

As the United States embraces a new year and a new president (and his Obama era dream team), we felt inclined to discuss our predictions for American foreign policy for 2021, including Africa, the Greater Middle East to include Iraq, Afghanistan, and Yemen, and the shift to great power competition including Russia and China.

This episode references a brand new article out today from Danny at TomDispatch, which covers much of the topics in this episode and a few we didn’t cover.  Please read and share!!

Dr. Ben Freeman – Ep 87

Dr. Ben Freeman, the Director of the Foreign Influence Transparency Initiative at the Center for International Policy (CIP), stops by the podcast to discuss his own intellectual and professional journey, his work on foreign funding and influence inside the United States, the oft-misunderstood role and defense-industry links American think tanks, why we should ever keep an eye on Saudi machinations, and the related prospects for Biden transition team—with more than a few quips and inside jokes along the way.  See his CIP bio page for more details and past publications.  Follow Ben on Twitter @BenFreemanDC.

The foreign policy history of Joe Biden – Ep 83

Read

It all comes down to this.  After around 18 months of speculation and primaries, the election is Tuesday.  The country is at a crossroads of immense proportions.  And to add to the leftist/progressive discussion and atmosphere of the 2020 presidential election, here is an analysis of the critical points of Joe Biden’s record concerning foreign policy anda brief examination of his domestic record relating to racial justice, to include a half dozen sound clips from the man himself.  This was a difficult episode to create, given the polarizing nature of Biden’s record and American politics today more generally, and it will be difficult to hear as well.  Please email us with your comments, let us know where you fall, whether you agree or disagree, and be sure to vote on Tuesday!
