This episode is without the incomparable Trent Browett, but Scott and Josh plow through “all” of the history and current state of North Korea.
Sebastian Gorka drops by the pod to say hi.
In this episode Trent, Josh and Scott take a long look at NAFTA, and give it a taste of it’s own neoliberal medicine with a scathing cost benefit analysis. Trent takes a look at the real effect it has had on agriculture in both America and Mexico. Scott meanwhile gives analysis on how Canada is navigating the old trumpster south of the border in NAFTA renegotiations. Josh breaks down what happens when you spread yourself as dangerously thin as America has, and how it’s really fucking the Kurds over right now.
The pod is now a month old.
This week Scott and the Boys (Trent and Josh) dissect what the hell is happening to our Troops (diplomats) in Cuba. Trent revisits the question of Catalonian independence and how states can maintain legitimacy in times of turmoil. Josh somehow manages to shoehorn the NFL into this weeks discussion while using the Gates Foundation as a punching bag for his daddy issues.
Trump listens to our Podcast.
This week Josh kicks off the show by talking about the largest stateless ethnic minority in the world: The Kurds. Scott takes us on a whirlwind tour through the most recent German Election. Trent is horrified at rich Catalonians being told they can’t just pack up and leave the country because it has poor people.
Paul Cleveland leaves us along for a change, and the show was worse for it.
