This episode features politics professor Jason Brownlee on current US meddling in Venezuela and whether or not direct military intervention by the US is likely, in the context of US foreign policy historically.

Jason also briefly touches on the US media coverage of the white supremacist terrorist attack in Christchurch, which we covered last episode #222.

For more on the history of US foreign policy, check out Jason’s book Democracy Prevention: The Politics of the U.S.-Egyptian Alliance and Noam Chomsky’s Hegemony or Survival: America’s Quest for Global Dominance.

This episode features politics professor Jason Brownlee on the US election. This is a continuation of our discussion with Jason from episode 146. This time we discuss: will Clinton’s policies move to the left as a result of the popularity of Sanders? Or is she just pandering (or Sandering :p)? Clinton versus Trump on abortion rights; gender bias against Clinton; the importance of alternative ideas from minor parties; third party candidates and dividing the progressive vote; problems with the US electoral system; and anarchism and voting.

We also discuss the fallout from the (likely) Trump loss and this episode of BBC radio, where you can hear Trump supporters make some bizarre claims.
