This podcast is really great. Andelman is a professional host, and asks pretty interesting questions. The guests themselves always have been doing pretty neat work or have a different perspective on the parts of the world they have been working in. Definitely a 5/5.
The revived version of World Policy on Air provides insightful commentary into some of the most pressing global affairs issues of our time. It’s a wonderful addition to the news and politics podcast landscape.
This podcast offers spectacular insight to issues around the world, especially those getting little attention. World Policy Journal explores world affairs from an angle Ive not seen in many leading publications and David Alpern is a phenomenal host and steers the conversations in provocative and insightful directions. Definitely give a two thumbs up, and suggest a listen!
