Each week here at Foreign Policy, we interview one person for an intimate, narrative-driven conversation about something timely and important in the world. Our guests are people who have participated directly in events, either as protagonists or eyewitnesses. We get them to tell a story about their experience, not just offer their analysis. That approach is driven by the feeling here at Foreign Policy that to understand our world—to grasp the complexities and nuances of our time—we need to get as close to the source as possible. Hence the name First Person.

Excellent narrative-driven interviews

Good conversations. Good topics and guests.

Not as good as it used to be.

Ever since FP got rid of Rothkopf this podcast has slowly been going down hill. It used to provide thoughtful analysis of current events by a group of scholars and journalists. Now it's one person interviewing another person about one topic.

Being in the World

How to learn from and not to repeat the mistakes of history.
