#075 – Active Measures (Meddling in Elections)

In this episode I speak about Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. elections.  This is a prevalent topic in today’s media that doesn’t seem to be fleeting the way most coverage is nowadays.  I read an article in The New Yorker that resonated with me due to its depth, background and breadth of the topic and I’m going to share and reflect on a few excerpts from it in a Dan Carlin-esque way.
