DR. JOSEPH SIRACUSA

OUR FIRST IN-PERSON DISCUSSION

GUEST: DR. JOSEPH SIRACUSA

This is conversation that I had with Professor Joseph Siracusa in Melbourne, Australia, on the 17th of March, 2022, just before the Ukrainian invasion. We discussed the Ukraine-Russia tensions, international diplomacy, history, theology, philosophy, and many other topics.

Note that the audio for this episode was compromised, and so what is presented is the audio from the iPhone recording. It’s not ideal, but the message will overshadow the audio quality by far.

About professor Joseph Siracusa: Prof. Joseph Siracusa is a professor of Political History and International Diplomacy at Curtin University.

Born and raised in Chicago and a long time resident of Australia, Joseph studied at the University of Denver and the University of Vienna and received his PhD at the University of Colorado (Boulder). He has worked at Merrill Lynch in Boston and New York; the University of Queensland; and for three years served as a senior visiting fellow in the Key Centre for Ethics, Law, Justice and Governance at Griffith University.
