Will There Be a U.S. Military Intervention in Venezuela?

In this episode, the political crisis in Venezuela is discussed with self-declared president Juan Guaido's envoy to London Vanessa Neumann.

In the Reality Check segment, we shed light on alternative ways to win the so-called war on drugs.

This episode also includes a special interview with Palestinian pro-democracy activist Iyad el-Baghdadi, who discusses why he thinks he may have been the target of a threat from Saudi Arabia.
