In this episode of the Stratfor podcast, a conversation about Turkey. Domestic challenges from politics to the economy are pulling at the rule of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Relations between the United States and Turkey spiraled to such a nadir after Ankara launched an offensive into northeastern Syria, that Congress called for sanctions. Meantime, Turkey's relationship with the European Union appears to be fraying at the edges. All of this raises the question: will Turkey turn its sights on Russia?

Stratfor's Emily Hawthorne speaks with Sinan Ciddi, Assistant Professor, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University and Director of the Institute of Turkish Studies.
