On this show, foreign policy nerds break down the biggest global headlines and give listeners an inside look at the broader impacts of global events on politics, economics, and security. Your hosts are graduates of the Elliott School of International Affairs and avid followers of current international trends and policies, and they will guide you through some of the most pressing topics facing the international system today. The show is accessible for someone with little to no knowledge of international affairs, while still providing a thought-provoking experience for those with a background in the field.

If you are interested in becoming informed about geopolitics and international affairs, or if you already know about the subject but want to delve deeper and create a discussion, take a listen to Geopolitics Rundown: A Walkthrough of Foreign Affairs.
