LEXINGTON, Va., July 21, 2017 – Col. Jim Hentz, professor of international studies at Virginia Military Institute, will speak on the public radio program With Good Reason the week of July 22-28.

During the episode, which is titled “Face-to-Face Diplomacy,” Hentz will discuss why he believes the United States’ defense spending habits may be setting us up for failure, as countries such as China are investing more in research and development. Because of this, Hentz believes, the United States’ role as the world’s only superpower may soon be threatened.

Also appearing on the episode will be Marcus Holmes, of the College of William & Mary; Jack Lechelt, Northern Virginia Community College; Thomas Flores, George Mason University; and April Faye Manalong, Norfolk State University. To learn more about these individuals’ talk topics, visit the program's website.

Hentz can be heard Sunday, July 23, at 3:30 p.m. and Wednesday, July 26, at 3 p.m. on radio station WMRA, 89.9 FM. Audio files of the full program and its companion news feature will be posted to the With Good Reason website the week of the show.
