Since 2015, Columbia Global Reports has been sharing depth and clarity on global issues that are underreported. We don't just publish books, we use books to start conversations about topics that weren't getting the attention they deserved. At least, until we took them on. This podcast is your audio connection to these important topics.
 
From the worldwide rise of populism and medical tourism, to Chinese smartphones and Nigerian Cinema -- each season we’ll travel to different places and bring you the stories that you aren't already hearing about, connecting them to the current news at every turn. On this show, we’ll continue the conversations from our books with the journalists who know these stories best.
