No War for Saudi Arabia

For your because-2019 files:

So what fresh hell is this “locked and loaded” nonsense? That’s what kicks off this week’s Editors Roundtable edition of the Reason Podcast, featuring Nick Gillespie, Katherine Mangu-Ward, Peter Suderman, and Matt Welch. The quartet also discusses highlights and lowlights from last week’s Democratic presidential debate, rages against the dying of the vape, and tries to fix Katherine’s bad movie-watching instincts.

Audio production by Ian Keyser.
