Great content for those into foreign policy

Have been listening to this podcast for a few years and enjoy it. Content is informative. Only complaint is the sound engineering - the speakers/panelists/question askers don't have consistent volume (come on editing people!) and it's too quiet. I have to blast the volume in the car to hear it.

Hard to hear

The audio is a challenge. I honestly cannot hear most of what is said. This is worse for those who speak English as a second language or have a lighter voice. Also clanking of dishes and popping of soda cans (obviously a recording at a luncheon or dinner) is distracting. Great topic, just wish I could hear it.

Listen Critically & Carefully

CFR is a rich resource of world views and information, but remember: Just as critical reading skills have always been necessary to get at the truth (i.e., the heart) of any given wriiten piece, it is essential in today's times to have critical LISTENING skills; skills that are much needed in a world of podcasts if you want to accurately identify & analyze a given speaker's professional biasis and political leanings. That said, the "Inside CFR Events" podcast is a welcome source of world-wide views from those who are "in the know". The guests of CFR are a mix of current and past movers & shakers who've witnessed, studied and often documented extremely important world issues. Listen carefully and critically, and don’t be afraid to press "rewind/replay" as needed to ensure you fully understand what's being said—be it altruistic, analytical, didactic, or propagandist.
