Introducing... Global Translations: The world's vaccine tug-of-war
"POLITICO's Off Message" brings you a special episode of POLITICO's new
podcast series "Global Translations."
From closed factories to closed borders, the Covid-19 pandemic exposed
the fragility of our systems, creating a period of scarcity where demand
skyrocketed — from freezers to PPE — and we couldn't supply items fast
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.

A new tone from some in GOP on climate change -- but mostly behind closed doors

about big global problems that will take a certain amount of creativity

Which 2020 Democrat should Donald Trump most be afraid of?
To get the inside view from the only people in the world who know what
it’s like to run in a primary field so large -- and do so in the shadow
of Donald Trump -- we invited the strategists for four of the top GOP
primary campaigns of 2016 into a Washington cigar bar, a literal
smoke-filled room, to talk shop. Which Democratic candidate has the most
raw political talent? What weaknesses of Donald Trump's would they
exploit in 2020? And why is everybody still so ticked off about the
Guests Danny Diaz (from the Bush campaign), Beth Hansen (Kasich), Jeff
Roe (Cruz), and Terry Sullivan (Rubio).
This is what Kirsten Gillibrand hates about running for president
Kirsten Gillibrand is a U.S. Senator with a soaring national profile,
but her presidential campaign has yet to take flight. She’s even at risk
of failing to have enough donors to make the debate stage under DNC
rules, leading her to ask people for just a dollar, to boost her
numbers. But that’s not what bothers her most about running for
Is John Hickenlooper too normal to be president?
In a crowded field of Democratic presidential contenders, former
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper makes an impression on voters as a
genuine candidate, even if he's a bit quirky. He colors outside the
lines of the political conventions -- a geologist by training, a brewer
and restauranteur by profession, and a politician only later in life.
In this episode, he talks about his temper as a child, his pragmatic
approach to politics, and how he's managed to succeed in a people-driven
business despite a condition commonly known as face blindness, a
condition that keeps him from recognizing familiar faces.

Great content, odd style
Great topics and interviewees - appreciate the in-depth chat on these people/issues. Isaac’s questions are good ones, but his style is this weird banter that makes me question if he’s talking sh** to them or flirting with them. Some playful/fun chat is nice, but let the guests speak and don’t demean them!
Trumpsters LIE and this is just another outlet that doesn't push against their LIES.
Just listened to the interview with Chip Roy, “rock ribbed conservative.” Tim Alberta asked pointed questions in a respectful way that elicited straight answers from Roy. This is exactly the kind of political discourse we need more of. Great job! I’m making Off Topic one of my regular go-to podcasts.
