Returning from summer hiatus, the podcast picks up where we left off:  in the midst of war and political chaos. Luckily, Justin Rogers-Cooper joins me to help us understand what it all might mean. We attempt to make sense of recent posturing from the Obama administration toward Syria, and speculate about the possible motivations underlying this somewhat baffling behavior. We also try to contextualize this summer’s revelations regarding the NSA from former employee and growing folk hero Edward Snowden, before wrapping up with an update on the recent primary election in New York City and what it may signal for the post-Bloomberg era.
