    Ep. 522: How Did Rome Defeat the Armies of Alexander's Successors?

    Nearly 2,200 years ago, the Greek historian Polybius tried to analyze how Rome's armies vanquished the world-conquering Hellenistic armies centered on the Macedonian pike-phalanx. In this episode, Aditya Ramanathan and Anirudh Kanisetti use both ancient and modern scholarship to look at how the Romans achieved this bloody and astonishing feat.

    Ep. 521: The Strange World of Serina

    Ep. 521: The Strange World of Serina

    Imagine a world of endless meadow and hills, lit by the glow of a nearby gas giant. Here, over hundreds of millions of years, birds evolve into a dizzying array of strange shapes and forms reminiscent of the grandeur and diversity of life on earth. Anirudh Kanisetti joins Shambhavi Naik to talk about "Serina", a speculative evolution project by Dylan Bajda that explores the natural history of a fictional terraformed moon - and what it teaches us about life on Earth.

    Ep. 519: How Russia Uses the Geopolitics of Natural Gas

    Ep. 519: How Russia Uses the Geopolitics of Natural Gas

    Russia has been the largest supplier of LNG to Europe. Being the hydrocarbon bridge between Western, Central and Eastern Europe, Ukraine is heavily dependent on transit fees from Russia.
    With the already-operational Nord Stream 1 and now almost complete Nord Stream 2, Russia has found a way to deprive Kiev of cash and achieve its geopolitical goals by other means.
    The US perceives Germany and the EU's dependence on Russian hydrocarbons to be a threat to their alliance's unity and political cohesion. This has led the US to explore and provide alternative solutions to Europe's energy security problem. Aditya Pareek joins Anirudh Kanisetti to discuss the geopolitics of Russian natural gas.
