Episode 169: A Revolutionary Centenary and the Paris Pull Out

Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week as host Richard Aldous speaks with our own Jamie Horgan about Trump’s latest snub of the global order before discussing the Russian revolution with Sean McMeekin.

First, Jamie Horgan, staff writer and podcast producer here at TAI, discusses the aftermath of Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, taking a look at what’s changed—and what hasn’t.

Then, Sean McMeekin, professor of history at Bard College, speaks with Richard about the Russian revolution (or, more accurately, the two revolutions) of 1917, and what lessons we can learn today, one hundred years later.

Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, where you can leave a review, and follow Jamie Horgan @JamieHorganAI and Richard Aldous @RJAldous on Twitter.
