Show Notes

We continue our series on foreign assistance with a deep dive into American programs that empower women economically and politically through family planning, maternal and prenatal care, and other gender-focused assistance. We discuss what happens if those programs are cut and how these issues are connected to domestic political values. Our guest for that discussion is Talia Dubovi of CSIS. We also pull apart recent reporting on the president’s attempt to torpedo the nuclear agreement with Iran regardless of the fact that it’s been working, and what that means for American credibility around the world. Finally, learn the crazy story of how choosing the wrong font in a document may bring down the prime minister of Pakistan.
