EA’s Political WorldView podcast, recorded the day before Britain’s referendum on European Union membership, packs a punch this week — on Brexit; on political violence, following the mass killings in an Orlando, Florida nightclub and the assassination of British MP Jo Cox; and on the upcoming Australian election.

The Orlando/Cox discussion turns into a feisty exchange of views over the responsibility of political rhetoric for the violence, while the discussion on Australia’s July 2 ballot considers if the country’s economy is in danger, its society riven over migrants and refugees, and its politic broken.

In between the Numbers of the Week range from North Korea’s latest plea for attention to British Prime Minister David Cameron’s miscalculation to a sobering look at the refugee issue.
