Informative, Insightful, and Entertaining

The first episode of this new podcast series does a great job outlining the national security threats facing our country today, in a way that everyone can understand. The topics are relevant and complicated, but the experts explain these concepts in effective ways. Very bipartisan approach to national security/foriegn affairs and I am excited to see future episodes!

Informative, objective

Provides in-depth coverage of foreign policy-related issues. Goes far beyond the headlines.

Turn up the volume please!

I listen to a lot of podcasts and one thing that makes me want to switch when this one comes on is it's soooo quiet! I'm interested in the mission of CSIS and the guests and host, while a bit dry, provide thoughtful, educated reflections on major world events, but I can barely hear you!! This is a production issue, should be relatively easy to fix. Thanks for the info and I hope you use this to improve the show.
