Professional demagogue





Muttering across the pond…

"You can’t tweet your way out of a problem in a federal courtroom!”

Tune in to hear me chat with certified good-guy Attorney General Bob Ferguson from Washington State.

The dude that's sued bigots of all stripes, including the President himself, continues to push back against discrimination in modern-day America and explains why he still has hope in the US judicial system.

In conversation with Professor Rana Mitter (Director of Oxford's Dickson Poon China Centre) and Edward Howell (Oxford MPhil research topic: 'The state survival of North Korea').

After an abridged catch-up of US-Asian relations since the cold war, we discuss the confusing logics of Trump’s Asia policies and the prognosis for the coming denuclearisation talks with North Korea.
