One of the best podcasts. Period.

Always thoughtful. Some episodes do a deep dive into specific issues and others take a more bird’s-eye approach of the structural issues of the international order. But whether it’s micro or macro, the podcast’s hosts do a great job of asking probing questions of their expert guests. Even if you disagree with a guest’s point of view, you will hear the best articulation if that view.

Interesting insights.
