    Why India’s Modi Underperformed

    Why India’s Modi Underperformed

    From pundits to polls, there was a wide expectation this year that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi would not only win a rare third consecutive term, but also secure an even bigger parliamentary majority than he had before. As results emerged on Tuesday, it was clear that India’s voters had other ideas. Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party won the most seats—more than the entire opposition alliance combined—but it will need the help of coalition allies to form a government. 
    How will Modi govern in a third term, and what will it mean for the world? FP’s Ravi Agrawal is joined by experts Milan Vaishnav and Yamini Aiyar to discuss.

    What to Expect From Mexico’s Elections

    The presidential election in Mexico this weekend will likely result in the country’s first female president.

Former Mexican Ambassador to the United States Arturo Sarukhán joins Ravi Agrawal to analyze López Obrador’s legacy and how Mexico’s next leader may or may not enact different policies.

Establishment FP

If you want a regurgitation of Establishment/ Democrat Party foreign policy that has failed across the board, this podcast is for you. The interviewer is below average and rarely pushes back on the many silly things that many of the guests say. The interviewer is incapable of independent thought or analysis. I often wonder where do they find these intellectual lightweights and kooks who will always praise NATO, unconditionally support funding for Ukraine without a goal in mind, hate Trump and the Abraham Accords, kowtow to China etc.

I just read ACAST’s privacy policy- I’m deleting FP’s podcasts

ACADT’s presumptuous compromise of my privacy is unacceptable.
