Foreign Policy Playlist

Is the Cure Worse than the Pandemic?



Foreign Policy Playlist recommends Doha Debates' Course Corrections.

In this episode of Foreign Policy Playlist, we recommend Doha Debates’ Course Correction with Nelufar Hedayat, Season 2 of the podcast was produced with the help of Foreign Policy and seeks to understand different sides of polarizing issues.

In the first episode of the new season, Hedayat looks at the controversy over lockdowns and whether this cure for the pandemic, is worse than the disease.

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.
