Dinner Table Politics: International Edition

Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial

This is the first episode of Dinner Table Politics that has been formatted specifically for radio, with the possibility of being broadcast on KSL! Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

Abby and Jim, fresh from a visit to London and France, discuss the history of the British crown and the differences between the governments of the USA and the UK.  Learn why Oliver Cromwell was the LeBron James of his day and whether or not Winnie the Pooh was named after Winston Churchill.

Many questions: would America be better if Donald Trump were only the head of state, not head of government? (Or vice versa?) Why does D-Day still matter over seven decades after the fact? And is Disney’s animated Robin Hood movie historically accurate?

Plus: should James Gunn be rehired as the Guardians of the Galaxy director? Why can’t we go back to the moon? (Hint: It’s a wardrobe problem.) And is the best proof that no alien life exists the fact that none of it has tried to contact us?
