EA’s Political WorldView Podcast: The Mexico and CIA Torture Edition

This week’s Political WorldView podcast tries to understand two controversies.

What does the likely killing of 43 students in Mexico say about the state of the country and its future?

And what does a court hearing about two psychologists involved in the CIA’s torture of detainees after 9/11 say about future programs and the people who have multi-million-dollar contracts to carry them out?

Adam Quinn, Christalla Yakinthou, and Scott Lucas get to grips with the significance of the developments. And they bring back Number of the Week to highlight stories from British Prime Minister David Cameron and corruption to the dangerous math professor taken off an airplane as a possible “terrorist”.
