Native host Briana Kurtz is asking a tough question today: what the hell is going on in Turkey? Brooklyn College Louis Fishman is in studio today for a thorough discussion on the upcoming Turkish election in which Turkish voters return to a new round of elections, following the failure of the religious conservative AKP to form a coalition government with the secular-orientated CHP, the nationalist MHP, or the mostly-Kurdish leftist HDP.  After the break, Briana and Louis unpack the current events occurring in Syria, and talk what is next for this troubled area.


“I think everything Turkey has done has been with the semi-blessing of the US – this is my opinion.”
