Kirk Bennett

Good evening, listeners! We have an excellent episode for you this week as host Richard Aldous speaks with George Walden about the recent terrorist attack in Manchester, before discussing allegations of Trump’s collusion with Russia with Kirk Bennett.

First, George Walden, a former diplomat and government minister who is now a writer, speaks with Richard about how a 59 year old autobiography of Lord Robert Vansittart can help us better understand the challenges of both ISIS and Russia in the 21st century.

Then, Kirk Bennett, a retired U.S. Foreign Service Officer who has written extensively about Russia and the post-Soviet space, returns to the podcast to discuss the implausibility of the special prosecutor Robert Mueller finding stand-up-in-court proof showing collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in last year’s election.
