This photo was taken in Pittsburgh PA in mid December. As winter approaches, the snow and cold hit hard. Characteristic to the Pittsburgh area, snow comes as regularly as once a day. Few know that Pittsburgh gets more rain than Seattle, thus causing snow to be a daily part of Pittsburgher lives. Recent temperatures mark an unseasonable cold streak that brings temperatures to rare lows not seen since the 1960's and 70's. Some say the planet is warming, but perhaps there are cycles to these warm and cold times that slowly shift the seasons and their severity.

The Living Legacy of WWI: Jane Addams & Her Cosmopolitan Ethics, with Seiko Mimaki

"What distinguished Addams from other peace advocates was her strong emphasis on the crucial role of marginalized people, such as women, immigrants, and workers, in the peacemaking process," says Seiko Mimaki. Her views are highly relevant today, when people see themselves as abandoned by global elites. Unlike that of Woodrow Wilson, her vision of cosmopolitanism "pursued freedom and opportunity for everyone, not just for a privileged few."

What do Americans (Republican Voters) Actually Think?

We hear all sorts of assumptions as to what American voters—and now specifically Republican voters who may or may not serve as the basis for President Trump's support—think and believe about U.S. foreign policy. Do they have affection for Putin and Russia? Are they skeptical of free trade?

The People vs. Democracy: Why Our Freedom Is in Danger and How to Save It, with Yasch Mounk

Harvard's Yascha Mounk argues that liberalism and democracy are coming apart, creating new forms of illiberal democracy (democracy without rights) and undemocratic liberalism (rights without democracy). Populist leaders are flourishing; indeed, Hungary is on the verge of descending into dictatorship, with shamefully little criticism from the Europe or the U.S. What are the causes of this phenomenon? What can we do about it?
