Hudson Announces Launch of New Podcast and Media Fellows

Hudson Institute

WASHINGTON – Hudson Institute announced today the launch of a new podcast, The Realignment, hosted by Media Fellows Saagar Enjeti and Marshall Kosloff.

The United States is in the midst of a dramatic political realignment. Events such as the unexpected election of Donald Trump, populist revolts across Europe, and the arrival of an aggressive and unapologetic China have upended conventional wisdom. The Realignment is a weekly podcast that will explore these shifting norms in national security, economics, technology, and the role of government.

In Episode 1, Marshall and Saagar sit down with best-selling author of Hillbilly Elegy, J.D. Vance. They discuss whether it was a mistake to let China into the World Trade Organization, how conservatives should approach the free market, what it means to be an American Nationalist in 2019, and his skepticism of the technology industry as a venture capitalist.

“I think that we should consider China as our nation should have considered Nazi Germany in the mid-1930's. Only we should recognize that it’s more dangerous because it’s larger and it’s more ambitious. I think that Hitler wanted to rule Europe. I think that China wants to rule over a much larger share of the world—maybe the entire world.” – J.D. Vance (The Realignment, Episode 1)

Episode 2 will feature conservative thinker and author George Will. He joins The Realignment to discuss the role government should have in regulating technological advances, how to deal with the threat of a rising China, and whether the United States should pursue a manufacturing-based national economic strategy to confront it.
