Strategizing

I don’t know if there’s a problem with the podcast or the carrier, but sometimes the volume is inconsistent and an episode that I was eager to listen hasn’t uploaded. I’ve also had trouble deleting old episodes from this podcast and others. I’m one gen back on an iPhone with the latest software.

Insightful and enlightening

Years ago when Stratfor started their podcast I had been a regular listener, but over time became too busy, they transferred to a video podcast, and I dropped off. As I've slowly been getting more and more fed up with people that call themselves journalists these days, it occurred to me to see if Stratfor once again had an audio podcast and I was happily rewarded. Their objective analysis is a breath of fresh air in trying to make sense of the players and their motivations in the world, and I can not recommend it highly enough.
