Russian Ambasador to Turkey Assassination. The Electoral College. And How the Scandinavians Got It Right-and How We Can, Too

Russia’s ambassador to Ankara was killed today in a gun attack in the Turkish capital. We talk about the background involving Turkey, Russia and Syria with foreign correspondent and author of Inside Syria, Reesse Erlich.

Later we talk to Constitutional Scholar, Geoffrey R. Stone, about the Electoral College Vote.  Geoffrey R. Stone is the Edward H. Levi Distinguished Service Professor of law at the University of Chicago.  He is the author of many books in the field of constitutional law, including Perilous Times: Free Speech in Wartime (2004), War and Liberty: An American Dilemma (2007), Top Secret: When Government Keeps Us in the Dark (2007), and Sex and the Constitution (March 2017). He is also editor of the Supreme Court Review.

 

And a conversation with George Lakey, author of the book Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians Got it Right-and How We Can, Too.
