No Natural Disasters Here, Metaphorical or Otherwise

On this episode of OM’s Chatter we talk good news out of west Africa, sad news for the nationalists in Europe, which politicians dropped the ball this week (hint: they’re the ones you expect to), the continuing saga that is the Dakota pipeline protests, & more.

First, the gang celebrates some good news from around the world including a loss for the Austrian far-right presidential candidate Norbert Hoffer, and a victory for Gambia, which saw the election of Adama Barrow and the end of Yahya Jammeh’s 22-year reign.

We also check out some noteworthy topics: Trump’s “Twitter diplomacy”, Boris Johnson being Boris Johnson and fumbling on Brexit, the possibility of a Ban Ki-moon South Korean presidency, veterans protecting protesters at Standing Rock, and what the Italian referendum might mean for the country’s economic stability.
