Cold War History with JBSFC

Wed, Jun 27, 2018 - 9:53am

John and Steve used their discussion last evening to share a history lesson on diplomacy in the Cold War. They then compare and contrast previous Cold War diplomacy with current efforts in 2018.

This is not the usual must listen episode. Instead, John and Steve provide background and context so that you might have a better understanding of what makes the New Cold War so dangerous and how/why current US political dramatics are making diplomatic solutions much more difficult to attain. If you can find the time, you might find it interesting.
