World War III-ish • Mythmaking & the Middle East • Happy China

January 8, 2020

Happy 2020! 🎉🎉🎉

Kind of, anyway.

Join American Bill Poorman and Dutchman Nikolaj Groeneweg, living in Asia, as they take you on a humorously serious and seriously humorous romp through the week's international news! In this week's episode:

  • The US assassinates an Iranian leader, and Iran strikes back. It's gonna be fine, FINE.
  • The stories we tell ourselves to get ramped up for war and invasion
  • China stands to benefit from renewed chaos
  • And the good news, including marijuana legalization in Illinois?
