Dr Gorana Grgic returns from a six-month stint at Harvard University's Center for European Studies to give us a run-through of last week's rise to political prominence for the so-called "Squad" of Democratic congresswomen – and the international outcry over the racist attacks launched at the them. She also takes a look at the future of transatlantic relations under President Trump and new British PM Boris Johnson.

Available on iTunes and Spotify.

Produced by Apoorva Kolluru and Elliott Brennan.
