Mark Blyth, political economist at Brown's Watson Institute, and Carrie Nordlund, political scientist and associate director of Brown's Master of Public Affairs program, share their take on the news. On this episode: different scenarios as US states experiment with ‘opening up’ their economies; pandemic coverage in the US compared to the rest of the world; the Kafkaesque non-scandal that is ‘Obamagate’; whether the potential EU relief fund will be like ‘Hamilton’ the person or ‘Hamilton’ the musical; the ‘Pandemic’ movie, and why Americans love conspiracy theories; fantasizing about Prince Harry’s trip to a California DMV.
