Ep. 96: Richard Haass

Talking Beats with Daniel Lelchuk

“My own view right now is that the greatest threat to the national security of the Unites States is the division of the body politic— our own internal divisions.” Diplomat and writer Richard Haass joins the podcast. After a busy spring on Talking Beats filled with experts and luminaries on specific fields, we zoom way out in this episode and talk about our world— “a world in disarray,” as Haass describes it. One of the most significant experts on foreign policy, Dr. Haass is out with a new book called The World: A Brief Introduction. Using the book as a jumping off point for the conversation, Haass and Daniel take a deep dive into what is happening both with US foreign policy and various political instabilities all around the world. The discussion ranges from the moral and practical necessity of getting vaccines to India as soon as possible, to shifting European power bases (what will happen to Germany post Merkel?), to the role of great music serving to at least pause- if not “fix” the world’s problems. This episode paints a picture of a chaotic, difficult to understand world. Support Talking Beats with Daniel Lelchuk on Patreon. You will contribute to continued presentation of substantive interviews with the world's most compelling people.
