About This Episode

Ten months into the Biden administration, what have we learned about his domestic agenda and foreign policy credibility? Steve Erlanger, Susan Glasser, and Giles Whittell join Council President Ivo Daalder to unpack Americans’ reactions to a “Foreign Policy for the Middle Class” and whether the tagline has any substance. Then, they evaluate a busy week for US diplomats and check in on Britain’s lack of fuel and fowl thanks to Brexit, and more.
