Foreign Policy recommends: NPR's Rough Translation.
This week on Foreign Policy Playlist, we recommend Rough Translation, a podcast series from NPR that follows familiar conversations into unfamiliar territory.
Our new host, FP’s Amy Mackinnon, spoke with Rough Translation host Gregory Warner about the episode “We Don’t Say That,” which explores how race is talked about (or not talked about) in France.

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.
