Foreign Policy Playlist

Syrian Youth Living in Limbo



Foreign Policy Playlist recommends Syria's Lost Generation.

In this week’s podcast we feature FP Studio’s newest podcast Syria’s Lost Generation, a podcast about young Syrians who expected to live normal lives but instead are uprooted by war and traumatized by displacement. The series was produced in partnership with World Vision International and the Syrian American Medical Society

This six-part podcast reported by journalist David Enders, a veteran of Syrian war coverage, and hosted by award-winning actor Liam Cunningham, puts faces to the millions of Syrians who have been devastated by a decade of war in the country and names to the young people who have known nothing else.

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.
