This week was Alex’s last with us for the summer, and since everyone else was out of town, it was just the two of us in the studio. We started with David Beckham’s recent proposal to bring soccer to Miami and concluded that it would likely be a good fit for the city. Alex wanted listeners to text-in and suggest topics, so the next two — Israel/Palestine and Iraq– were listener-suggested. We started with Israel and possible band-aid fixes moving forward following operation Protective Edge and seemed to be in agreement that peace in the region was still quite a ways off. As for the ISIS encroachment in Iraq, we debated the role the U.S. should play and whether or not we retain our title of “police of the world.” We’ll miss him, but there’s always Winter Break and next summer!

Apologies in advance for the audio this week: due to technical bugs, the first minute or so was cut off. Catch the replay after the break. Keep it locked.
