Deep State Radio
About This Show
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.Read more »

If It's Not Treason Then What Is It?
1 day ago
As Deep State Radio's resident Constitutional scholar (and Associate Dean of Georgetown Law School) Rosa Brooks explains, the legal threshold for designating behavior as treasonous is quite narrow. But as she also points out, it would be up to Congress to define what was unacceptable in an impeachment hearing. As evidence mounts that the Trump campaign was deeply entwined with Russia and the Trump Administration has been taking a straight Kremlin line on everything, we have clearly crossed the "this is not OK" threshold and we may be headed for something much more serious than that. Rosa, Kori Schake, Evelyn Farkas and David Rothkopf discuss this issue and the state of America's alliances with a NATO Summit and a potential meeting in Europe with Vladimir Putin loom in the next several weeks. Tune in.Read more »

Educational, humorous, informed. (Mostly) Sane.
A “tripartisan committee” of FP “aluminati” and associates provide informative, learned and witty analysis of current national security news. Moderated by David Rothkopf, what I most love about this podcast is how the contributors manage to maintain good humor, respect and courtesy, despite differences in political affiliation -- and I don’t mean in the fake, uncritical manner employed of certain news outlets.
If my “aluminati” line evoked even a slight smirk, you will also appreciate their droll humor.

Excellent discussion, but ...
I love this panel, especially Rothkopf, and wish I could stay, but I've run out of patience with the inside humor and excessive chuckling. Clearly they have a big following, so it's just me.
