Deep State Radio
The Perfect Weapon
On this special episode of Deep State Radio we get a sneak peak at the latest work of our own David Sanger (who we share with the New York Times and his students at Harvard's Kennedy School). The book, "The Perfect Weapon", is the definitive work on the state of cyberwar told compellingly in the real life stories of the unfolding of a new chapter in the history of global conflict. Join David, Georgetown University's Rosa Brooks and IISS' Kori Schake for a discussion of one of the transformational issues of our time...and why the US is not prepared for the next big attack on our electoral system.
Have We Already Seen the October Surprise?
Is a resurgent COVID the October Surprise? Is it the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg? Will it be the nomination and approval of a replacement for her prior to the election?Will it be the announcement of a vaccine?Or is it tied to the president's reluctance to guarantee a peaceful hand-over of power if he loses.We discuss these options and others with Mimi Rocah, candidate for Westchester, NY, District Attorney, Katie Barlow, attorney and journalist, and Dr. Kavita Patel, practicing physician and former senior Obama White House aide.Co-hosts Ryan Goodman of NYU Law School and David Rothkopf of The DSR Network explore the implications of this week's developments on all these issues with our guests and the discussion is riveting.Join us.

What Happens When We Lose a National Hero a Moment When the Entire US Government Faces a Crisis of Legitimacy?
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a rarity in Washington, a true hero, one of those voices who would not be silenced by conventional wisdom or the zeitgeist or politics or the pushback of the powerful.Her loss therefore is not simply the loss of a dependably progressive viewpoint on America's highest court, it is of a true leader and individual of integrity at a moment when those are a rarity in Washington.The entire US government is, at this moment, suffering from a crisis of legitimacy from which it cannot recover without a new generation--and an army--of RBGs.We discuss with Rosa Brooks of Georgetown Law Center, Mieke Eoyang of the Third Way and Edward Luce of the Financial Times.Join us.
