Ben Rhodes, A former White House aide and close confidant to President Barack Obama, discusses what it was like to go from being the ultimate White House insider to reporting on world events from the outside.  He talks about his conversation with the now imprisoned Russian activist Alexei Navalny, what he learned from the Hong Kong protesters, and how Hungarian strongman Victor Orban quickly consolidated power and rolled back post-Soviet freedoms.  Plus he reveals why he believes that America is partly to blame for figures like Orban, Putin, and Xi, and he even weighs in on the government’s joint intelligence report about Unidentified Arial Phenomena.

Order Ben's new book After the Fall: Being American in the World We've Made on Amazon, Audible, or wherever books are sold.  Subscribe to Ben’s podcast Pod Save the World wherever you like to listen, and follow him on twitter at @brhodes.
