The Strait Guys: Connecting America and Russia

The ongoing super feud between America and Russia has caused colossal collateral damage internationally, and everyone will feel the effects of the fallout. But what if there is a project that Russia and the US can collaborate on that would bring peace, progress, and prosperity?

Ross Ashcroft is joined by filmmaker Rick Minnich and InterContinental Railway Chief Advisor Scott Spencer to discuss how the InterContinental railway project would connect former foes to trade with one another, generating commerce, not conflict, for everyone.

Sanctions: The Blowback

Whatever the outcome in Ukraine, one thing is for sure: The economic reverberations will be felt by everyone for years to come, as the world divides between the West and a rapidly re-shaping Eurasia.

Ross Ashcroft is joined by economist Michael Hudson to discuss trade, sanctions, dollar hegemony, and the emergence of a multipolar world.

Weaponizing our rights

Many Western organizations urgently need reviving – especially in the face of rising authoritarianism globally.

Ross Ashcroft caught up with the former UN independent expert on international order, Alfred De Zayas, and spoke to him about the weaponization of human rights, a failing legacy media, the unintended effects of sanctions, and how we can begin to rejuvenate our institutions and democracies.

Team humanity

There seems to be one rule for me yet another for thee. It’s this hypocrisy that the author Charlie Robinson takes on in his most recent book: Hypocrazy. His argument is clear: as much as the powers-that-be tell us that things are normal, there is no alternative, and this is the natural order of events – it really isn’t. None of what we are experiencing is ‘normal’ and, more importantly, there is an alternative.

The Nord Stream dream is America’s nightmare

All this geopolitical hot air was always going to be about gas, and, predicting that, before all the horse trading and brinkmanship began, we caught up with two independent energy experts, Irina Slav and Ben Aris. They cut through the noise and give some useful context to the fundamental problems Europe and the UK now face to – quite literally – keep the lights on.

Russia – a recent history lesson

If you listen to Western leaders or the corporate media, you’d believe that Russia is by far the most evil and regressive country on the planet and therefore needs to be sanctioned back to the Stone Age as punishment. But how much of this rhetoric is based on fact rather than the fear of the Russian bear coming out of hibernation into our interdependent multipolar world? 

Ross Ashcroft is joined by professor of Slavic studies Vladimir Golstein and filmmaker Andrei Nekrasov to discuss Russia’s past, present, and future.
