The Gist

He Stared Down the Soviets

Before he was a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and president of the Council on Foreign Relations, Leslie H. Gelb negotiated with the Soviet Union as a senior official in the Pentagon and State Department. Today on The Gist, Mike asks Gelb about negotiating with Iran and Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress. For the Spiel, it's pledge-drive season in public radio. Mike tabs up the amount of time you spend listening to noncommercial appeals for cash. Today’s sponsors: Stamps.com.
