Foreign Policy Playlist

Each week, Foreign Policy’s Amy Mackinnon, will recommend one podcast from around the world, interview the host, and play an excerpt. This 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. See for privacy and opt-out information.


What Happened After El Chapo Was Arrested?

In our last Foreign Policy Playlist episode in May, we feature Vice News’ Chapo: Kingpin on Trial. It’s a miniseries that explores the impact of Sinaloa cartel leader Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán by sharing the stories of people who were caught up in the drug war between the United States and Mexico.

Episode seven of Chapo follows the violence that followed after El Chapo was arrested and extradited to the United States. FP’s Amy Mackinnon talks to Chapo’s host Keegan Hamilton about how they put together the episode and how they treated a story that affected a member of their own team.
