  2. Hi,
    some robot at twitter the other day advised me to follow you and to listen to your podcasts. For once, AI outperformed pure randomness; I don’t want to jinx it or anything, but you guys are doing a pretty awesome job. I’m working fast through the backlog of your shows and both your own analyses and your guests’ are proving brilliant and engaging. Just for the sake of criticism, I would love to hear more of a socio-economic reading of the jihadi phenomenon as these guys from the crazies of the Paris attacks to al-Bagdadi appear mostly as a coalition of the losers of the liberalisation/globalisation game of the past 20 years.
    Anyhow, I hope you continue with the good work and keep sending great podcasts our way, God willing.
