We’re living in a time when we have so many important questions, not just about COVID-19, but also about politics, social media, education, work-life balance, and more. We want answers fast—but we want them from a reliable source.
This semester, we thought we’d try something new at BU Today to bring our readers even closer to the diverse community of experts here at Boston University. In our new podcast, Question of the Week, my colleagues and I will interview experts from across the University in search of answers to pressing questions, while occasionally taking a breather to explore a lighter subject.
Has President Biden lowered the temperature as he promised to do? Will space tourism actually take off? When will COVID end? Does Amazon’s growth need to be stopped? These are the sort of questions we’ll tackle through short, provocative conversations with BU experts. We’ll talk politics, business, culture, education, science, medicine, sports, health, and more.
Our podcast launches next week, and in our first episode, amidst the Afghanistan crisis, we ask: 20 years after 9/11, is the United States more or less vulnerable to another attack? I talk to Andrew Bacevich, a College of Arts & Sciences and Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies professor emeritus of international relations and of history, and the author of multiple books, including Washington Rules: America’s Path to Permanent War.
