In today's episode, Bob and Scott have a free-wheeling discussion about the origins of the New Left, the Wisconsin School (school of thought around the history of foreign relations), and the how these radical ideas still have currency in today's emerging movements.
This episode is a tribute to esteemed diplomatic historian Thomas McCormick who passed away on July 25th, 2020.
