series description

GZERO WORLD WITH IAN BREMMER is a public affairs series offering compelling discussion about global politics with people from all sides of the political spectrum. GZERO comes at a time when the world order that has united much of the globe since the end of World War II is fraying, and global summits like G-7 and G-20 no longer have the influence they once did. Each week, Ian Bremmer, a renowned political scientist, shares his perspective on recent global events and sits down with world leaders, noted experts and newsmakers who are shaping the current international order. The series includes a political satire segment called "Puppet Regime," which uses felt puppets of world leaders and many others - such as Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-Un and Angela Merkel, as well as business leaders like Mark Zuckerberg - to help make sense of the serious and complex issues of today's international politics.
