June 13, 2018

Episode Notes:

As Saudi-supported forces are poised to take Hodeidah – a major port that is used to get humanitarian aid into Yemen – the human cost of the Yemeni civil war will undoubtedly spike from already terrible levels. Jason talks with Charles Schmitz, professor of geography at Towson University, about the current state of the conflict and the consequences of a battle for Hodeidah.
