Foreign Policy recommends: The Atlas Obscura Podcast 

On this episode of FP Playlist, we feature an episode from The Atlas Obscura Podcast, a daily show that seeks to capture the stories of unique and wondrous places around the world—in 15 minutes or less. This episode focuses on the Western Sahara—and the world’s largest conveyor belt that runs through it.

Host Amy Mackinnon sat down with Atlas Obscura co-founder Dylan Thuras to discuss the unlikely places reported on by Atlas Obscura and how some places get more attention from media than others.

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.
