Advances in machine learning and vocal recognition are giving rise to new ways of intelligent machines—such as self-driving cars and electronic assistants.

#393: Chicago Torture and Barack Obama’s ‘Scandal-Free’ Presidency

Aired Friday, January 6, 2017   ·   07:00 AM CST   ·   57 minutes

Four black teens in Chicago kidnapped and tortured a young, white, handicapped teenager this week and live-streamed a video of the torture. The kidnappers tied him up and taped his mouth shut, then beat him, sliced his scalp, forced him to curse Donald Trump and then drink from a toilet—all the while they yelled about how much they hated white people. The story was largely underreported in the liberal press. When President Barack Obama was questioned about the incident he said it was “terrible,” but also noted that race relations have improved during his presidency. On today’s show, Stephen Flurry discusses this disturbing event and how it shows the troubling direction America is headed.

#392: 2017: The Year Germany Is Forced to Lead

Aired Thursday, January 5, 2017   ·   07:00 AM CST   ·   55 minutes

Since the end of World War II, Germany has generally been content in America’s shadow. The nation has been reluctant to show its power, being satisfied with economic success. But 2017 presents Germany with major international challenges. With a Russian ally in the White House, German Chancellor Angela Merkel could become Russian President Vladimir Putin’s enemy No. 1. The radical shifts in American foreign policy will force Germany to make tough decisions—and force it to try and unite Europe around whatever decision it makes. All this will force Germany to throw its weight around on the world scene in a way not often seen. Trumpet staff writer Richard Palmer examines why 2017 will be the year Germany is forced to lead.
