Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week, as host Richard Aldous speaks with Patrick Chamorel about the upcoming election in France, before discussing the thorny issue of the Central European University with Jeffrey Gedmin.

First, Patrick Chamorel, a senior resident scholar at Stanford University’s Stanford in Washington program, returns to the program to discuss the results from the most recent round of the French election, and what to expect from the Le Pen-Macron runoff.

Then, Jeffrey Gedmin, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, senior advisor, Blue Star Strategies, and former president and CEO of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, speaks about the controversy surrounding new legislation in Hungary that would shut down the George Soros-backed Central European University in Budapest.
