Good evening, podcast listeners! This week, for the first time, Richard Aldous hosts two guests simultaneously. This episode focuses on the crisis in Ukraine, and both its future implications and historical roots.Lilia Shevtsova joins us once again to lend her expertise to the subject, and we welcome Freedom House president David J. Kramer for the first time. The two discuss Russia’s options, the West’s rather feckless response, and the ideological underpinnings of the conflict, before broadening the scope to look at how this affects American foreign policy.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and follow our host, Richard Aldous, on Twitter @RJAldous.
