Daniella and Jesse return to “The Tent” this week with an episode focused on America’s tumultuous August, which saw the Biden administration bring the U.S. combat mission in Afghanistan to a close, worsening wildfires in the West, and catastrophic storms and floods in the East. Dan Berschinski, a retired Army combat veteran, joins for a guest interview and shares his thoughts on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and American foreign policy over the past two decades.
