We’re pleased to release the first podcast episode of Departures with Robert Amsterdam, an interview series that will follow us on our travels around the world, featuring special guests whom we view as voices of authority speaking on a vast range of international political and economic issues, from political risk for entrepreneurs in Africa to geopolitical analysis of the emerging alignments in the Middle East. Unscripted and off-the-cuff, Departures invites you to join Robert Amsterdam and other members of the Amsterdam & Partners LLP team for frank and personal conversations on the pressing issues of the day.
Our inaugural episode features our good friend and colleague, the author David Satter, to talk about the recent attempted assassination of ex-spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, United Kingdom. Is Russia to blame for the attack, which deployed a recklessly dangerous nerve agent? If so, what can we expect as a response? David and Bob also debate Russia’s strategy in Syria, the future of State Department after Rex Tillerson, among other observations.
