“The UN-Scripted podcast, taking their listeners inside the UN to talk with world newsmaker in candid and revealing interviews”—Podcast Magazine

“Sometimes they bring you interviews, including with Russia representative Dmitry Polyanskiy, who has ardent opinions about both fake news and dogs. Occasionally, guests are fairly tight-lipped about their experiences; they are diplomats, after all. Other episodes recap big events or breaking news, like the UN General Assembly. In either case, it’s not a topic typically covered in podcast form.”—Digital Trends, The best podcasts for the week of November 2, 2019

“They dig into debates and underreported behind-the-scenes wrangling between diplomats as they try to figure out the big issues: the new Cold War, keeping global peace, and how countries should work together in the future”—Esquire UK, the best podcast of 2019, in the category morally improving big politics
