I Was a Guest On the ‘Intellectual Gentlemen’s Club’ Podcast

Sometimes I’m lucky enough to be a guest on other people’s podcasts. I’ve done several of them in the past year or so, and I’m always flattered that anyone is interested in hearing what I’ve got to say. I don’t normally mention them here at Disinfo because I want to avoid even the very whiff of personal promotion, but with so many interviews with me starting to pile up out there in the aether I thought it might be time to fill you in on them here and there.

Feel free to completely disregard this post, but if you’re interested in hearing an interview with me then you would do well with this my recent appearance on the “Intellectual Gentlemen’s Club” podcast.

Media Roots Radio – Obama’s Syrian War

On the latest edition of Media Roots Radio, Abby and Robbie Martin discuss how a new war against Syria seems all but inevitable.

They talk about the eerily similar establishment rhetoric between the Iraq war buildup and today’s Syria war mongering – specifically the potential unilateral US military action in defiance of the UN, the ‘humanitarian’ justification and the scare tactics of ‘chemical weapons’. A recent speech by Secretary of State, John Kerry, marked a distinct turning point in the ferocity of the Syria rhetoric, which is dissected by Robbie and Abby in its entirety.
