On June 23, Shadi and Damir went live on Periscope to discuss
latest piece for the Atlantic, the tension between
political change and negative externalities, their new Patreon
account, and plans for a newsletter.
About the Podcast
We’re Damir Marusic and Shadi Hamid. We live in Washington DC and have been friends for a while. One of us works at a magazine, another thinks in a tank. The idea behind the podcast is to try out ideas in the hope of getting considered push-back—in real-time. We talk politics, ideas, culture, and current events. Civil discussion, maybe even a bit odd. But hopefully fun.
