How Squid Explains the State of Our Oceans



Foreign Policy’s new six-part narrative series on global fishing.

Foreign Policy recommends: The Catch

This week on FP Playlist, we feature the first episode of The Catch from Foreign Policy and the Walton Family Foundation. Each episode looks at global fishing through the lens of squid—and how that impacts our oceans, global supply chains, consumer choices, community economies, and livelihoods.

Host Ruxandra Guidi sat down with Playlist host Laura Rosbrow-Telem to discuss squid, storytelling, and its peculiar intersections.

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.
