    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by analyst Mark Sleboda.

    Russia has responded to the new US sanctions that were almost unanimously passed by Congress by forcing the US to cut most of its diplomatic staff in the country. US-Russia relations continue to spiral downward.

    Venezuela has voted in elections for a constituent assembly, with over 8 million people participating despite violence and threats from the right wing opposition. What's next for the country's Bolivarian revolution? Arnold August, lecturer and journalist, joins the show.

    The United States has said that the "time for talk is over" after North Korea's latest intercontinental ballistic missile test and the Moon Jae-in administration in the South considers expanding the deployment of the US' THAAD missile system. Simone Chun of the Korea Policy Institute joins Brian.
