TAC Right Now

Dec 9, 2022

Emile, Helen, Micah, and Sohrab unpack the Brittney Griner prisoner swap, discussing whether Viktor Bout poses a threat to the US, how bad a deal it was for the Biden administration, and the broader implications for the Russia / Ukraine conflict. There's more news on that front this week, too, as Zelensky--recently named Time's 'Person of the Year'--makes moves to crack down on the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. Plus, the hosts debate whether you should care about the World Cup.
Picks of the week: 
Emile: The European Union as Seen From Washington, Kevin Roberts
Micah: I'm a Stranger Here Myself, Brian Kaller
Helen: The Next Iran, Sohrab Ahmari
Sohrab: FDR Won, Hunter DeRensis
