Espresso and United States’ foreign policy came together in Tuscaloosa this month. University of Alabama professors Daniel Levine and Waleed Hazbun convened a public forum at the Monarch Espresso Bar. The event was to discuss the role the U.S. might play in global affairs following the withdrawal of Afghanistan.

APR student reporter Connor Todd was also there to bring us the varied opinions that were heard. Connor put together this audio postcard, starting with APR news director Pat Duggins who acted as moderator.
