An interesting interview from NPR, available as podcast in above link, also transcribed in above link.

Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Tom Ricks says the writings of Winston Churchill and George Orwell still resonate today. Ricks also discusses the generals serving in the Trump administration.

And here’s the follow up podcast:

Very informative - at least, for someone like me who didn’t really understand very much about how or why Flynn (or Russia!) was involved, it is a narrative that makes sense.

Matthew Rosenberg of The New York Times began writing about Gen. Flynn in 2009 in Afghanistan; now he’s investigating Flynn’s role in Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
