    "POLITICO Money" brings you a special episode of POLITICO's new podcast

    enough. In this episode of "Global Translations", POLITICO hosts Luiza
    Savage and Ryan Heath take a deep dive with experts into global supply
    chains and what "decoupling" and "reshoring" are all about when it comes
    to America’s reliance on China and the rest of the world.
