Jim Zirin speaks with Micah Zenko.

For centuries, the Vatican has used a devil’s advocate to vet all applicants for sainthood. Today, our military,
the intelligence community and the private sector employ a technique known as “red teaming” to test vulnerabilities, play war games and give an alternative strategic and tactical analysis of a proposed action. Council on Foreign Relations Senior Fellow Micah Zenko, author of a fascinating book called Red Team: How to Succeed by Thinking Like the Enemy, tells Jim of a principled way to arrive at the right answer.

Jim Zirin speaks with Ellen Futter.

New York’s iconic natural history museum has opened an exhibition of one of the largest dinosaurs ever identified. It is a Titanosaur some of whose ancient fossilized bones were discovered by a farmer in Patagonia. Ellen Futter, president of the Museum and Mark Norell, its chief paleontologist, tell Jim that they will continue their hunt for dinosaurs well into the twenty-first century.
