Relief with a Biden/Harris victory • Will underlying problems get addressed? • The joys of a botched presser

November 9, 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! Another episode with a focus on the US, because, you know:

• The presidential race has been called for Biden/Harris, and we're breathing a sigh of relief. But it still feels tenuous until Trump concedes.

• The sheer joy that was the “press conference” at the “Four Seasons” in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

• We’re concerned that the underlying problems will not be addressed, especially issues of inequality and especially by the Democrats. And Andrew Yang backs us up.

• Given the closeness of the race - and in the interests of domestic peace - Americans need to try to understand one another. But man, some Trump supporters make it hard, especially the conspiracy theorists. 

• And just in case it bears repeating, the good news is the Biden/Harris win.
