Deep State Radio

Deep State Radio

Twice a week, this podcast will take you on a smart, direct, sometimes scary, sometimes profane, sometimes hilarious tour of the inner workings of American power and of the impact of our leaders and their policies on our standing in the world. Hosted by noted author and commentator David Rothkopf and featuring regulars Rosa Brooks of Georgetown Law School, Kori Schake of Stanford University and David Sanger of the New York Times, the program will be the lively, smart dinner table conversation on the big issues of the day that you wish you were having...without the calories. Sometimes special guests will join the conversation and always the emphasis will be on providing the unvarnished perspectives others shy away from. Deep State Radio is the insider perspective on American national security and foreign policy that you can't find anywhere else.

For four decades America has been led away from the values of opportunity and creative ingenuity that led it to become the greatest power in the world. Inequality has grown, society has grown more divided, and power has grown more concentrated in the hands of the few. How we got here is revealed in Kurt Andersen's brilliant, insight-rich new book "Evil Geniuses: The Unmaking of America: A Recent History." In this episode we talk to Andersen about the book, about the choices we currently face as a society, about who is responsible for the state we are in and about who may ultimately determine how we break out of this era and its crushing consequences. Andersen's book comes out early next week, so you'll have the chance to listen to the podcast and then pre-order the book and still get it just as it is hitting the bookstores. A great, thought-provoking conversation you won't want to miss.
