77) Machine Gun Politics (Correct Upload) Today, I welcome Jessie Bullock, PhD candidate in Government at Harvard University, to introduce the concept of corruption. More specifically, explore the reasons as to why politicians are actively and willingly engaging with criminal organizations in Southern and Central America.
Bio: I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Government at Harvard University, studying Comparative Politics and Political Economy. My broad research interests include conflict, organized crime, inequality, distributive politics, corruption, and rule of law.
My dissertation book project, Machine Gun Politics: Why Politicians Cooperate with Criminal Groups, explains what politicians can gain from partnering with criminal actors. I leverage a quasi-experimental study of voting, an original database on criminal governance, and 18 months of extensive fieldwork in this mixed-methods study of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A working paper drawing from my dissertation, Organized Crime and Voter Mobilization, recently won the 2020 Best Paper Award from the Subnational Politics and Society section of the Latin American Studies Association (LASA).
My other research focuses on the implications of public security on inequality and violence. My working paper Why Limiting Police Raids Decreased Criminal Violence in Rio de Janeiro was referenced in Brazilian Supreme Court testimony regarding the legality of police raids.
I am the recipient of a 2019 Weatherhead Center for International Affairs Dissertation Writing Fellowship and the 2018 recipient of the Jorge Paulo Lemann Traveling Fellowship to Brazil. My field work has generously been supported by the Corporación Andino de Fomiento (CAF), David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS), the Harvard Brazil Cities Initiative, and the Foundations of Human Behavior Initiative (FHB). I am a current graduate student affiliate of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and the Institute for Quantitative Social Sciences.

76) Spotify Spotify has been put into the media thanks to Joe Rogan and Neil Young. However, Spotify has actually been a debated topic for some time now. Journalist, Mark Dent, shares his investigative findings on how the billion dollar streaming service, is failing all of its artists.
Bio: I'm a journalist based in Dallas and sometimes in the Kansas City area, where I'm from. I write about business, tech, urbanism, sports, religion, changing cities and ephemera from the 90s. I'm currently working on a book about Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes that is slated to be published in 2023 by Dutton. It tells the history of Kansas City, Mahomes, and the Chiefs and how the city and Mahomes are trying to usher in a new era as the city confronts its past and its inferiority complex. My work has been published in The New York Times, Texas Monthly, Vox, GQ, WIRED, Slate, Fortune, VICE, Runner's World, The Kansas City Star, The Philadelphia Inquirer, PolitiFact and Deadline Hollywood among other publications.

(Episode Swap) Sinobabble: The Third Front In this episode we'll be discussing the Third Front, a covert industrialization campaign that took place between 1964 and 1972 in China's remote, mountainous interior. This little-discussed campaign actually formed a crucial part of China's Cold War policy strategy, and despite its clandestine nature cost billions of yuan in resource and personnel allocation, as well as for construction and transportation. The Third Front was part of China's preparations for war with either the US, the Soviet Union, or their allies in the region, especially after the US joined the Vietnam War in mid-1964. Major industrial and military complexes were built in southwest, central-west, and northwestern provinces, which were also interconnected by new railway lines and powered by grand hydro-electric dams.

In the end, the Third Front fizzled out, especially after the relationship between China and the US improved, Minister of Defence Lin Biao passed away, and particularly after the death of Mao Zedong. Many of the projects remained uncompleted, with others suffering from the pains of rushed construction, rendering them useless in the long-run. Despite its short run however, the Third Front did have have a major impact on China's economics and politics during the 60s and 70s, and deserves our attention as an important factor in China's Cold War policy formation. It also gives us another lens through which to view Chinese history, one which relies less on social history and a Maoist lens, and takes into consideration external factors that caused major shifts in the sentiments of the CCP leadership even during major domestic events such as the Cultural Revolution.
