Show Notes

  • European nations recently made a very public agreement to begin to unifying their militaries into a single European army. But an underreported story is all of the work Germany is doing quietly on its own to create such an army.
  • Russia is scheduled to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup this summer. A look at history shows how Russia has used high-profile sporting events like this to further its geopolitical ambitions.
