(Episode Excerpts: 10.3, 22.3, 22.5, and 28.2) This week we’ve bundled a collection of World War II segments into a single show: (1) on the anniversary of Hitler’s suicide, Boris and Adrian talk about the mythology of WWII; (2) we discuss the decision to drop the bomb; (3) plus some after-show chatter (I was out of the room during most of the bomb segment. This is, in-part, what we talked about after that show); and (4) Boris and Adrian ask, “what if Germany won WWII?”
(Recorded June 23, 2019) This Week, Obama’s Foreign Policy.
