How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maduro?
Russell Crandall

Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week.

First, host Richard Aldous speaks with Drew Miller, a former intelligence officer, a former senior executive service member in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, a retired Air Force Reserve Colonel, and the current Director of Advanced Analysis Applications, about the looming threat of tailor-made viral pandemics.

Then, Davidson College professor and frequent TAI contributor Russell Crandall returns to the show to discuss Venezuela’s teetering economy, how much removing President Maduro from office could do for the country, and how much more would still need to be done to pull it back from the brink.
