Foreign Policy Playlist

A First-Person Account of the War in Nagorno-Karabakh


FP Playlist The Take

Foreign Policy recommends: Al Jazeera's The Take.

On the latest episode of Foreign Policy Playlist, we spotlight The Take, a podcast from Al Jazeera that delves into global issues one story at a time. 

One of The Take’s recent episodes included a first-person account from Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed territory between Armenia and Azerbaijan where tensions and fighting have flared up in the past month. We feature that episode on Foreign Policy Playlist along with a conversation that FP editor in chief Jonathan Tepperman had with the show’s host, Malika Bilal.

About Foreign Policy Playlist:  We’re rolling out a new podcast called Foreign Policy Playlist. We hope you’ll give it a listen. Each week, Foreign Policy’s national security and intelligence reporter Amy Mackinnon will recommend one podcast from around the world and play an excerpt.  The curated show is designed to help listeners interested in the things we are—great stories, compelling interviews, and cogent analysis on international affairs—sort through the overwhelming variety of podcasts out there and find the best ones. And occasionally you’ll hear audio from our own newsroom.  FP Playlist replaces our flagship podcast First Person. You can download a new episode each Wednesday on Apple, Spotify, and all the other usual places.  See All Episodes

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.
