This week we’re joined by Seamus Hughes, Deputy Director of the Program on Extremism at George Washington University, an expert on terrorism, homegrown violent extremism, and countering violent extremism (CVE). We discuss Seamus’ headline-making work, the research tools and skills it takes to accomplish that work, and how his political career brought him to this topic.
Josh, Liam, and Paul discuss what’s been going on in their worlds this week, including Democratic Presidential hopefuls, CPAC, and what the Cohen hearings tell us about the new class of Congress.
This week we had the pleasure of sitting down with Bracewell Partner and chair of the firm’s national white collar defense practice, Stephen Braga. Braga talks to us about the wonder that is white collar crime, one of his most interesting pro bono cases, The West Memphis Three, and the Lord of the Rings character named after him.
