The hosts talk about the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, both what it meant to them as residents of Washington DC and the implications for American democracy. Later they are joined by Jill Allen Murray, deputy executive director of public policy for NAFSA: Association of International Educators, to discuss current policy climate for international students in the United States and what the higher education community would like the Biden administration to prioritize in this area.

Here are some of the links and references from this week’s show:
