This is “Unconventional Knowledge”, where we look at one event and ask an expert to explain what journalists are missing. Information is an iceberg, and most often we are only shown the tip. We want to bring our listeners the whole picture. That’s why every episode, we reach out to a different expert from Geopolitical Intelligence Services and ask them to answer one question in their specific area of expertise.
