We hosted the newest edition of Democracy in Crisis! I talked with co-host Baynard Woods about the the now present specter of nuclear war and Trumps latest comments on the situation with North Korea. Democracy in Crisis is produced by Calvin Perry.
We speak to Dr. Francois Furstenberg, Associate Professor of History at Johns Hopkins about his new book When the United States Spoke French: Five Refugees who Shaped a Nation. The book follows a group of French émigrés who fled the French Revolution and settled in Philadelphia, where they integrated into some of the most exalted political and financial networks of the young nation. The book examines early US political culture, its economic life, and major geopolitical issues bearing on Louisiana and the Caribbean.
We discuss the historic climate change agreement announced today between President Obama and China’s President Xi Jinping, in which both countries vowed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions over the next two decades.
