World Leaders Converge at Opposite Ends of the Globe

On this episode of The Backstory, host Rachel Blevins discussed a number of topics from around the globe, including the latest from Washington as the NATO summit sets to kick off on Tuesday, July 9.

Rachel kicked off this week’s edition of The Backstory with author, journalist and podcast host, Peter Coffin, as the two discussed Joe Biden’s potential decision to bow out of the 2024 election.

Following a discussion on Biden’s candidacy, Rachel shifted gears to Moscow, where Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Rachel was joined by international relations and security analyst, Mark Sleboda, who analyzed the latest developments and provided expert insight into this meeting.

In the final segment of the show, veteran war correspondent and journalist, Elijah Magnier, discussed the second round of the French elections, which saw a surprising turn of events with the leftist New Popular Front getting the most parliamentary seats.
