     In the context of a coming Presidential election, the selection of a Vice presidential nominee is only rarely crucial… but The Nation’s national politics correspondent John Nichols says 2020 could be an exception.  Whoever runs with Joe Biden could signal the direction of the Democratic Party for Decades…just as FDR did when he picked Harry Truman in 1944.  How that happened, and how it changed American history is the subject of Nichols’ new book The Fight for the Soul of the Democratic Party.

    Hop-scotching the world in search of a Nobel Peace prize-winning diplomatic triumph, President Donald Trump has tried muscle and sanctions in Iran and sweet talk and promises with North Korea.  No luck.  So about peace between Serbia and Kosovo.  Former UN diplomat and scholar Ed Joseph says the grand plan for a White House summit blew up when the Kosovar President was indicted as a war criminal.  Most Kosovars were glad to see the summit disappear, though many dispute President Hashim Thaci’s indictment.

    Here And There 4 August, 2020 Jeremy Schwartz

    A North Dakota construction magnate, backed by a far-right Steve Bannon-linked foundation, built 3 miles of border wall along the Rio Grande in Texas at no expense to the government.  Then he cashed in his $50 million investment in a $1.7 billion wall building contract.  But his “free gift” wall – even before it was flooded by Hurricane Hanna -- seems to be slipping into the river. Jeremy Schwartz of the Texas Tribune and ProPublica broke the story.

I like the way the topics here are not the same ones that are over-covered by other political talk shows. Kudos on a refreshing range of interests!

Marash's sharp intelligence shines

Renowned journalist Dave Marash gets his decades' worth of contacts to discuss important issues of the day and explain them. That alone would be great, but Marash's own considerable knowledge allows him to ask sharp, pointed questions that reveal more than you'd normally get from an interview. Excellent all around.

Marash is the Best

This is real news. People who know what they're talking about just trying to explain the complicated world around us. Great Listen.
