On today's show Anthony Pereira, the Director of King's Brazil Institute at King's College joins us to discuss the crisis in Brazil.
The development of Brazil’s “Workers’ Party” from the 70’s to Lula’s administration. The role of systemic corruption in Brazilian politics. Why this case looks like selective invocation of the law by anti-Worker’s Party forces. The role of the Brazilian oligarchy in deposing Lula. How Lula personalized the Workers’ Party in an unproductive way. (10:30)
And on the Fun Half - Trump on remembering 7-11, Kasich is disgruntled again in a New York deli, Giuliani wants to establish that he’s NOT part of the Trump campaign, Laura Ingraham has technical difficulties, and you calls and IMs! (43:15)
