Foreign Policy Playlist

China’s Feminist Backlash



Foreign Policy recommends: SCMP's Inside China.

This week on Foreign Policy Playlist we’re featuring Inside China, a podcast from the South China Morning Post that looks at a range of topics, including the country’s rapidly developing space industry, technology, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

A recent episode of the show spotlights the ongoing fight by Chinese women to freeze their eggs—and also why the country’s birth rate continues to fall.

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

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.
