Raising the Standard.

Podcast & Notes: The 6th District, Syria, and ‘Going Nuclear’

Visual created by Graphic Design Coordinator Mallory Traylor.

Associate Editor Michael Duckett, Assistant Editor Boris A. Abreu, and Editor-in-Chief Nick Geeslin discuss this (very busy) week’s most salient news.

Notes: 

Things We Missed: 

  • In news, we missed the news that 98,000 jobs had been added this past month. Of course, this is being dubbed as a massive failure by nearly any outlet you can find, with an utter disregard for the fact that unemployment is hovering barely above the 4% mark, which is considered to be below the target level of unemployment for a healthy economy (5%).
  • Each of the topics we covered could have been expounded upon in detail, but for the sake of time we limited ourselves. We encourage you, however, to continue your research.
