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.

The "Stormy" Kim Illusion
4 days ago
When Donald Trump thinks about Kim Jong Un he sees Stormy Daniels. At least he sees what he saw that night long ago with Ms. Daniels, which is something that he wanted very very much, that he needed to the exclusion of everything else. He yearns for what Kim and Kim alone can give him. And that is a taste of historical redemption, something that might change the narrative that even Trump can see is being written about him being the most corrupt and inept president in American history. Which could lead to the master of the art of the deal getting taken in a negotiation. Will it happen? Will the mustachioed man at the president's side allow it? We discuss this and the other usual mayhem with Rosa Brooks, Ed Luce and Sam Vinograd on this podisode. Join us!

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.
