Yeah, that was David Vine. And you're listening to U S A. T b d. A podcast exploring critical issues facing America today, of which there are many social justice causes systemic racial oppression. Chief among them an outdated vision lists and unsustainable foreign policy. A broken food system in which we are literally eating ourselves to death and a political system so dysfunctional it feels almost beyond reform. All of this unfolding within a world of accelerating exponential technological change and in a country that doesn't really know itself where myths and half truths still define the narratives we believe in and live by. So who are we really deep down? And how do we get here? What's actually happening today right now? And where do we go from here Together As a nation and a people in the future that is very much to be determined. I'm your host, Dave Burnett. My guest today is David Vine, professor of anthropology at American University. His absorbing and distressing 2015 book based nation. How U S military bases abroad harm America and the world, deconstructs the conventional wisdom underpinning our nation's vast global network of military installations and illuminates the many destructive consequences they cause. He joined me from his office in Washington, D. C.
