Episode 05, Democracy Inaction

At the 101st day of the new administration, Stephen, Kurt, and Nick react to America's increasingly cozy relationship with dictators, authoritarians, and leaders who project strength.  Is this policy just a reflection of realism, or should the U.S. do more to promote democracy and human rights throughout the world?  Then, the team discusses the recent referendum in Turkey and why some people would vote away their own democratic powers.  Lastly, Kurt and Stephen revive our Key Terms segment with a look at Populism and Illiberal Democracies.
