Happy Thursday Strange Days listeners! This week, we take a bird’s eye view of foreign policy, corruption, and conflict in the Middle East with the brilliant Rula Jebreal, a Middle East Policy analyst, journalist, screenwriter, and university professor. Then we have “Thanks Obama” author David Litt share what it was like working at his dream job as a speechwriter in The White House during the Obama years. And finally, as part of our “Flip that Seat” series, we interview veteran and West Virginia State Senator Richard Ojeda, who once survived a brutal beating two days before his primary, and recovered to become a Democratic State Senator in the heart of Trump country and is now on the warpath to represent his district in Washington. Enjoy!
