    France's election with Peter Ricketts

    President Macron did something truly unexpected when he called a snap election in the aftermath of the European parliamentary elections. It now looks very likely that France's next legislature will contain a plurality of hard right deputies from Marine Le Pen's National Rally. I spoke to Lord Peter Ricketts, former British Ambassador to France about this unexpected election and what it portends.

    America's political crisis - the historic, structural and ideological roots

    With Trump's criminal conviction, the chaos and division of American politics seems set to increase. But this is about much more than what happened in a New York courtroom, with roots in American history, its political structures and the rise of certain ideological movements. I spoke to American political scientist Jonathan Terra about the backdrop to the current events.

Access to real experts!

Arthur Snell lets the experts shine and really get into the weeds on complex issues. Great resource for the systemic issues at play and the global repercussions of conflicts.

Good on Ukraine too biased on Israel

Not bad on Ukraine, but immediately switched to Israel responsibility on the Gaza situation. Apparently different rules for Jews.
