Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 11: Much More Than Collusion

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 11: Much More Than Collusion

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 12: The Mueller Investigation

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 12: The Mueller Investigation

The Mueller investigation is not a contest of men but of principles. It is a contest between two ways of seeing the world, the outcome of which will very possibly determine whether or not the notion of an American republic makes any sense.

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 16: The European Union

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 16: The European Union

The European Union is the largest economy in the history of the world and the most important zone of contiguous democracies today. What it lacks is a sense of its own history, which creates a surprisingly important opportunity for those who wish it ill, above all in Moscow. Here we try to explain what has made the European Union possible, and what will be necessary to defend its future.

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 8: Cybercolony USA

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 8: Cybercolony USA

In 2016 Russia defeated the United States in a cyberwar, selecting the president of the United States.

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 5: Christianity and Christmas

Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 5: Christianity and Christmas

Too often these days invoking the name of Jesus or claiming Christian religion has become an escape from responsibility for plainly un-Christian behavior. Are Christians forgiven for everything because they find ways to blame others for their own actions? Perhaps the meaning of Christmas is something else, extending an idea of the good rather than defending what is plainly bad, and perhaps a Christmas greeting is a way to affirm others rather than claiming all righteousness for ourselves. Merry Christmas. Timothy Snyder is a historian at Yale University, specializing in eastern Europe, totalitarianism, and the Holocaust. His books have received widespread acclaim.
