    This week, we are doing something different for FP Playlist.

Great show, annoying host

The stories and topics on this show are great and I really look forward to each new episode.

The host of the show however is quite irritating. Very annoying voice.

Intelligent discussion that’s fact-based

The Foreign Policy podcast is one of the very few that presents intelligent discussion of some of the most intractable problems facing humans today.
I don’t understand the one-star reviews: if you’re looking for pablum this is the wrong place, just move on!
Every episode is thought-provoking.
The first episode of the “Arab Spring” series (ca late January 2021) reminds us of Tunisia and the beginnings.
Gripping.
