The Good Fight Podcast

Putin’s Scapegoat

Meet the man who made it his life’s task to improve America’s relations with Russia—and ended up as a prime target of Putin’s ire.

Listen to Michael McFaul:

In this episode of The Good Fight, Yascha Mounk talks to Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, about the roots of America’s conflict with the Kremlin, whether a better relationship between the countries would have been possible, and how democracies can protect themselves against autocrats who are intent on promoting dictatorship around the world.
