In this first episode of the Let's Know Things podcast, we start by talking about 'contextualism' and how it applies to the unspooling of news items in order to understand their significance and why they're presented the way they are.
We then use an article from The Atlantic, entitled China's Twilight Years, as a starting point for a larger discussion about hegemony, American foreign policy, the use of The Other as a political tool, and why bogeyman-focused policies aren't achieving the same results that they used to.
Let's Know Things is produced and hosted by Colin Wright.
