EA’s Political WorldView Podcast: The Castro and Lying Liars Edition

The Political WorldView team at the University of Birmingham — Adam Quinn, Christalla Yakinthou, and Marco Vieira — take on politics from the US to Cuba.

First, the panel consider the death and legacy of Fidel Castro — is he a hero, villain, or a historic figure in between?

Then it’s on to a different politician, assessing Donald Trump’s unprecedented combination of the roles of President-elect and Twitter troll: how should the media report on the statements of elected officials who tell brazen lies?
