Global Voices is a podcast from the Burkle Center at UCLA and The Generation, UCLA’s foreign affairs journal. We strive to tell global stories from the perspectives of UCLA students and professors.
Donald Trump’s candidacy has redefined how presidential candidates should act and speak, running a campaign that has shocked many Americans. Trump’s huge base of support can be put into context by comparing him to another charismatic leader: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Listen to how the two polarizing figures share common ideals and strategies, understand how each has gained popular support, and consider the repercussions of each of their respective movements.
What do polar bears and organized religion have in common? Join us as we traverse the intersection of environment and faith, explain why their overlap is important, and see how participating in conversations that incorporate both of them may be the key to solving environmental issues and more. Tune in on Earth Day (Saturday, April 22nd).
