I learned a lot

I’ve been listening to the Arms Control Wonk podcast for a while now, so I was excited to listen to this miniseries. It did not disappoint, and I am grateful for the excellent depictions of the politicking and power plays.

I’m writing this the day after someone has assassinated yet another Iranian nuclear scientist, this time Mr Mohsen Fakhrizade.

This series is making connections for me that, now upon hearing news of that assassination, cause me to feel distress.

Excellent series 5/5
