On today’s show:
- The president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, has caused a lot of geopolitical angst. He brags about killing suspected drug dealers and drug users, and regularly threatens to dissolve Congress if he doesn’t get his way. We talk about what Duterte’s rule means for the relationship between the U.S. and the Philippines.
- We also check in on the state of environmental activism in Honduras after the murder of indigenous activist Berta Cáceres and others.
