Policy, Guns and Money: Bushfire crisis and US–Iran standoff

In this episode, we examine the US killing of the commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Qassem Soleimani, and the bushfire crisis affecting large parts of Australia.

First up, ASPI Executive Director Peter Jennings discusses the tense situation in the Middle East with our US Army War College fellow, Ned Holt.

On the bushfires, we speak to three experts in disaster and risk preparedness, including the former head of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, Robert Glasser. We also hear from the former director-general of Emergency Management Australia, Mark Crosweller, and Paul Barnes, the head of ASPI’s risk and resilience program.
