Episode 80 of the NonProphets podcast, in which Atief, Robert, and Scott discuss a call from a NonProphets listener who used to help produce MemCons (record of the President's calls) in the Situation Room for the NSC. The listener reached out to us after Episode 78 with details about both what we and the media understand about Trump's conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine, and where the details don't add up. The podcast begins with Scott's recounting of the conversation, the technicalities as well as implications of moving a MemCon from the TNet system to the NICE system (6:49), Ukraine's predicament, Lt. Col. Vindman and Ambassador Taylor (13:45), impeachment (21:00), Baghdadi, Trump, and the Nationals, all in a day (30:30), and finally we end on a light note, anticipating our annual Pantone color podcast.
