Pacific Region - Oceania

Excellent podcast. Thank you for the discussion topics, especially topics regarding Oceania.

Any future coverage or discussion planned on the announcement by VPOTUS at the Ocean’s Conference in Fiji of the US Embassy to be established in Tonga and Kiribati?

Need Better Sound

This is a very informative podcast, but it is often hard to hear Ankit. Katy comes in loud and clear, but Ankit tends to speak in a lower tone, and his volume often trails off about a third of the way through a sentence or thought. It makes it difficult to listen in the car, and it contrasts with Katy and other guests, who I can hear just fine. Perhaps a better microphone?

Pakistan flooding

Pakistan flooding illustrates weather. It says nothing about climate. I would suggest you find a college that educates students.
