Our first guest is Mel Goodman, professor of government at Johns Hopkins University. A former CIA analyst, Goodman is a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy. We discuss US policy toward China -- both in its current form and what changes we think ought to be made. We also discuss the likelihood that Pres.-elect Biden’s new foreign policy team will follow an effective China policy.
We speak with Lydia Dugdale, professor at Columbia and Director of its Center for Clinical Medical Ethics. She is author of a book entitled “The Lost Art of Dying; Reviving Forgotten Wisdom,” about medieval advice developed in the wake of the bubonic plague.
We discuss Dr. Dugdale’s recent article: “Rethinking Black Friday to Include End-of-Life Conversations.”
