Getting Serious About Managing the Dual Crisis • Corona Is a Class Issue • Goats for Everyone

May 9, 2020

It's the Foreign Influence Podcast, in which American Bill Poorman and Dutchman Nikolaj Groeneweg - in defiance of all things corona - take you on a humorously serious and seriously humorous romp through the week's international events! This week:

• Staying in is hard for some people.

• What it takes to make the necessary trade-offs between the public health crisis and the economic crisis.

• The danger from the virus is a class issue.

• America the leader of the world? Not according to everybody else.

• And as we always do, some good news. It involves llamas and goats. What's not to like?

Thanks for listening!
