Long voting lines • Do we like politicians to lie to us? • New missiles = big trouble

October 27, 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 week's international events! This week:

• Bill has voted. He had to wait an hour-and-a-half to do so, and Nikolaj just can't understand how that's possible.

• Lying and politics - We have global issues of trust in government. Do politicians lie, or do we want to be lied to? Or is politics basically just impossible?

• And we have fun with "hydrosonic" weapons. That is, until war breaks out in Asia...

Thanks for listening!
