“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”

“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.”
