Happy New Year! • 2020 reflections, 2021 predictions • And about as much happiness as we can muster

December 29, 2020

It's the Foreign Influence Podcast, with American Bill Poorman and Dutchman Nikolaj Groeneweg, taking you on a humorously serious and seriously humorous romp through the year's week's international events! This time:

• It's our end-of-the-year show! We still don't know where the crab people are, but we're sure they're delicious.

• According to scientists and historians, 2020 hasn't even made it on the list of worst years (yet). We have the objective answer to when you really didn't want to be alive.

• We invoke the Power of the Jinx to make sure 2021 will be better.

• We remember the long-term trends that will really shape life going forward.

Thanks for listening!
