Welcome to On the Couch, a new political podcast from Reaction and broadcaster and psychotherapist Lucy Beresford. In each episode, Lucy is joined by a special guest to take a deep dive into the relationships making the headlines in politics today and explore the psychology of so much in political life.

This week On the Couch, Lucy Beresford is joined by Foreign Policy columnist and American Enterprise Institute (AEI) fellow Elisabeth Braw. They discuss the psychology of security, the current conflict in Ukraine, how NATO expansion plays on Putin’s mindset and whether the waging of war was influenced by the belief that Europe hadn’t paid much attention to security in recent years.
