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.
