Beyond Fear Audio and Transcripts Now Available

So many of the decisions being made in US foreign policy and national security seem to be driven by (or justified by) fear. But there are other ways for Americans to look at the world.

In the past and in the present, the United States has found ways to provide positive, global leadership. The radio production team at the Stanley Foundation went looking for those examples.

The result is a brand new radio documentary, "Beyond Fear: America's Role in an Uncertain World."

The program features reports from Djibouti, Ukraine, India, and Aceh along with interviews of Colin Powell, Sam Nunn, Richard Lugar, Kenneth Bacon, and more. This is the fourth documentary the foundation has done with David Brancaccio (host of the PBS program NOW) and the documentary once again concludes with an essay from David putting the reporting and analysis into a larger, more meaningful context.

All of the documentary material, plus photos and complete interviews (audio and transcripts) are now available here.

"Beyond Fear: America's Role in an Uncertain World" is produced by Simon Marks, Kristin McHugh, and Keith Porter. It is a Stanley Foundation production in association with KQED Public Radio.

Your blog is a well kept secret and I would love to hear more from you. Your report on Djibouti truly shows what our military can do if only we would let them. Keep up the good work and I will be checking in often.
