Credibility in question

I’ve listened to this podcast for a while. This is an updated review. I’ve previously appreciated the non partisan approach to discussing political issues. However the Russian episode presents serious credibility questions about the creators of this podcast. Regardless of party to ignore facts and paint a picture of a powerless leader of Russia and Russians eagerness to befriend the US is a gross mischaracterization on known facts. SHAME of you CSIS.
