Foreign Policy recommends: Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security's Seeking Peace podcast.

In our newest episode of Foreign Policy Playlist, we suggest you listen to the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security’s Seeking Peace podcast, which explores the role of women in facilitating peace in their communities.

One of Seeking Peace’s episodes features a conversation with Ziauddin Yousafzai, a United Nations special advisor on global education and the father of Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, about his decadeslong work advocating for girls’ education. Before we hear the episode, Foreign Policy’s editor at large Jonathan Tepperman speaks with Seeking Peace’s host, Melanne Verveer.  Verveer is a former U.S. ambassador for global women’s issues.

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.
