I Do Feel Quite Worldly Now TBH

A great look into current developments in international relations and American foreign policy. As with all Vox podcasts, very little background knowledge is presumed and plenty of time is spent on making sense of the whole picture, rather than simply reporting the most recent developments. The personalities of the hosts really shine through, making for a podcast which is as entertaining as it is informative. I particularly like their “Elsewhere” segments, which report on stories which get less coverage in most news outlets than they might deserve. Some good recent episodes: The Trump-Fox News-White Nationalist Feedback Loop, Talking Turkey (And Its Economic Crisis), and It’s Gettin Hot in Here, So Get Really Concerned About Global Stability. Favourite Episode: A Saudi-Iran Proxy War Has Torn Yemen Apart – And America is Fanning the Flames

Broaden your horizons and listen

Great to hear a US podcast so well informed about global events. Another excellent podcast from Vox.

World Weeds

Keeps the depth and intelligence of the great podcast The Weeds while turning the focus on international issues. Great way to stay informed about complicated issues that affect us all. Wide range of topics and viewpoints too, it's a perfect companion piece to the America centered podcast The Weeds which I would also highly reccomend.
