WORLD News Group, publisher of WORLD magazine and producer of WORLD Radio’s The World and Everything in It, has a new audio program called Listening In.
Listening In, hosted by Warren Cole Smith, is a conversational program featuring newsmakers and thought leaders that explores the depths of some of the most interesting topics of our day.
“Our goal is to explore topics as thoughtfully as possible,” said WORLD Radio Executive Producer Nick Eicher. “It’s more like NPR’s Fresh Air or public television’s Charlie Rose, but with an objective Christian perspective.”
Listening In airs each Friday. The program is available to radio stations via FTP download. For technical details, contact: Jonathan Bailie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A conversation with author Angelo Codevilla
Angelo Codevilla is not a household name, unless you are a student of international affairs and military history, and in that world Angelo Codevilla is a certified rock star.
Born in Italy in 1943, he immigrated to the United States as a child, became a U.S. citizen and eventually earned a Ph.D. and began an academic career. But in 1977 he joined the U.S. Foreign Service and quickly moved to Capitol Hill, where he served on the staff of the Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence.
He was a key strategist in the Reagan Administration, and was instrumental in the development of Reagan’s signature program, the Strategic Defense Initiative. SDI was derided by its detractors as a fantasy. They called it “Star Wars” in its day, but many historians believe SDI helped bring an end to the nuclear arms race the U.S. had been waging with the Soviet Union for more than 40 years, and eventually led to the breakup of the Soviet Union.
Codevilla has written more than a dozen books on national defense and statesmanship, some of which are considered classics in their field. His latest book is To Make and Keep Peace Among Ourselves and With All Nations (2014, Hoover Institution Press).
