Checkpoint Asia editor on the podcast circuit

Kyle Anzalone had me on for the second time for the 355th episode of his Foreign Policy in Focus podcast. We talked about the attempted coup in Venezuela and the situation in Syria.

Marko Marjanovic returns to FPF to talk about Venezuela and Syria. Kyle and Marko discuss how US regime change efforts in Venezuela have failed to topple Maduro. The US actions have hurt the Venezuelan people and increased Maduro’s popularity. In Syria, Assad is continuing to work to retake all of his country. Currently, he is battling with jihadists in Idlib. Kyle and Marko break down how Assad’s fight and the role of the US trying to prevent Assad from retaking Syria.
