Show Notes

This week we’re jumping off comments by WH Chief of Staff John Kelly to dive deep into how Americans think about how civilians and military leaders should interact. Then we take a trip to Asia with promised follow-up on the 19th Communist Party Congress in China and the president’s planned trip the Asia in November.
