Peter-Neumann_PodcastImageMark Stout sat down recently with Dr. Peter Neumann, Director of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation at King’s College in London who also teaches “Radicalization and Deradicalization in Terror Networks” for us. The subject was Dr. Neumann’s research into the foreign fighters who go to Iraq and Syria to fight as part of ISIS. A few days after we recorded this talk, a British member of ISIS beheaded two American journalists and he found himself in high demand in the news media on both sides of the Atlantic explaining how this happened. Listen to what he told us first.
