Munk Members-Only Pod: Mar-a-Lago Raid – Fall Politics

View descriptionShare

Munk Members Podcast provides listeners with a focused, half-hour masterclass on the big issues, events and trends driving the news and current events. The show features Janice Gross Stein, the founding director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and bestselling author, in conversation with Rudyard Griffiths, Chair and moderator of the Munk Debates.

This week’s Munk Members Podcast explores two stories in the news. First, the raid by FBI agents of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate to allegedly confiscate highly sensitive government documents, including possible information related to America’s nuclear weapons. Where is this investigation likely to go next? Could Trump be criminally charged? What would this mean for American politics, political culture and citizens’ perceptions of the impartiality of the exercise of the rule of law? Second, as Canada wraps up its “summer of discontent,” how are the major political parties positioning themselves to respond to a souring national mood? What role will inflation and higher interest rates play in exacerbating political divisions and competing visions of how to guide the country through a period of heightened economic uncertainty? Finally, Janice and Rudyard are challenging listeners to help them come up with a new name for this podcast. Send your suggestions to Thank you in advance for your suggestions!

This podcast is a project of the Munk Debates, a Canadian charitable organization dedicated to fostering civil and substantive public dialogue.
