Great stuff

I really enjoy the Brookings podcasts. The quality of the events and interviews are superior both in production and content to ... other think tanks podcasts.

Have US counterterrorism efforts improved since 9/11?.

Yes and no! The bad news as I interpret presenter: we are still creating the terrorists we fight and Trump has accelerated the rate at which we do it. Excellent 7 minute analysis.

Excellent Episode Titles/Summaries

I particularly enjoy the episode titles and summaries - even more so in the last two weeks. They’re always very concise and beautifully written. Kudos to Brookings on stepping up their game in, let me underscore, the last TWO weeks.
