On today’s podcast: On our first episode, we discuss why there’s no one way to stop an international outbreak.

On the last day of 2019, China reported an unusual outbreak in Wuhan, a port city with a population of 11 million. Less than three months later, the virus has spread to almost every continent on the globe and has killed over 4,000 people.

From Foreign Policy, a new podcast about the coronavirus, what it means for the world and for you. On today’s episode, FP’s James Palmer and Amy Mackinnon take a look at some of the latest headlines and explain why, to understand a global outbreak, you first have to understand the world we inhabit.

I Spy

Spies don’t talk—it’s the cardinal rule of the business. But here at Foreign Policy, we get them to open up. On I Spy, we hear from the operations people: the spies who steal secrets, who kill adversaries, who turn agents into double agents. Each episode features one spy telling the story of one operation.
