There's so much tension in the news this week.

 

International leaders are unhappy with the United States over tariffs, leading to concerns about the ability of the G7 to issue a joint statement. American diplomats in China are being brought home after experiencing neurological symptoms caused by sustained and mysterious sounds. And House GOP leaders are trying to quell and immigration revolt among their members. We discuss all of this, the idea of negative capability, and listener feedback on language as privilege.
