    Could we really fix gridlock in the Senate by creating new states? Malcolm revisits the "Divide and Conquer" episode from Season 3 in an interview on Deep Background with Noah Feldman, the newest podcast from Pushkin Industries.  "Divide and Conquer" covered Texas's right to divide into 5 separate states. What if Washington, D.C. -- a non-state territory -- tried to divide their city into 127 separate states? A recent anonymous note in the Harvard Law Review proposes just that. It's just the kind of bananas idea Malcolm loves to dissect, and Noah Feldman, a Harvard Law Professor and Constitutional law expert is the perfect foil. Noah's podcast, Deep Background with Noah Feldman, is available wherever you get your podcasts.

  • The Queen of Cuba

    The Queen of Cuba

    29/08/2019 Duração: 01h03min

    On February 24, 1996, Cuban fighter jets shot down two small planes operated by Brothers to the Rescue, an organization in Florida that tried to spot refugees fleeing Cuba in boats. A strange chain of events preceded the shoot-down, and people in the intelligence business turned to a rising star in the Defense Intelligence Agency, Ana Montes. Montes was known around Washington as the “Queen of Cuba” for her insights into the Castro regime. But what Montes’ colleagues eventually found out about her shook their sense of trust to the core. (In this excerpt from Malcolm Gladwell’s forthcoming audiobook Talking to Strangers, we hear why spy mysteries do not unfold in real life like they do in the movies.)
