Eritrea is sometimes called "The North Korea of Africa." After interviewing the author of a new Amnesty International report, i'm beginning to think that's unfair to North Korea. 
After Syrians and Afghans, the largest nationality of people who are fleeing as refugees to Europe are Eritreans. And the vast majority of Eritreans who are fleeing to Europe are young people between the ages of 18 and 24 who are escaping an oppressive system of compulsory national service. National service itself is not a …

Here's why Russia is driving the conversation at #SyriaTalksVienna  today
John Kerry, Sergei Lavrov and representatives from Iran, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Turkey meet in Vienna this week to discuss the Syria conflict. These talks were largely spurred by Russia, which one month ago launched airstrikes in support of the Syrian government. How has Russia’s military intervention in Syria affected the prospect for a negotiated …

Expect some discrete foreign policy shifts that could have worldwide ramifications
The Liberal party in Canada, lead by Justin Trudeau, shocked the world with a big, big win in hotly contested national elections. The Liberal ascent ends a near decade in power for the conservative Stephen Harper and has the potential to fundamentally re-balance Canada’s relationship with the world, so says my guest today Janice Stein …

William Perry served as Bill Clinton's  Secretary of Defense. In October 1962, he was 35. He tells me this super intense story of his time as a young intel analyst during the Cuban Missile Crisis. 
William Perry was the 19th Secretary of Defense, serving in the Clinton administration from 1994 to 1997. But in 1962, he was a 35 year old mathematician working in the defense industry and living in California. One day in October, his phone rang. It was the deputy director of the CIA who summoned him immediately …

What are some tried and true strategies for pitching advertisers who are new to podcast advertising? 

I'm starting to attract advertisers in a fairly niche field. I've had one advertiser with me for several months, suggesting that they find value in reaching my audience. So, I'd like to reach out to other similar organizations and pitch them. I use Libsyn, so I can stitch ads into older episodes (except, to my great frustration, to my listeners who use my free app. The ads are not sent to them).

So, my question to this community: what is the best way to pitch potential advertisers who are unfamiliar with podcast advertising; and relatedly, what other metrics can one use to measure success of an ad besides number of impressions? 

Thanks in advance!

Can anyone recommend an online service that specializes in post-production?  Auphonic seems to be a good option. Are there others? Basically,  I am looking for  a service that can automatically inspect and fix harmful static noise from my skype recordings.

The famous IR scholar applies Time travel to international relations theory. Hilarity ensues. 
Robert Jervis is on every international relations syllabus. And in this episode, you will learn how he got there. But first, we talk time travel and IR theory. Jervis is probably best known for his book Perception and Misperception in International Politics which was a groundbreaking work that applied principles of cognitive psychology to international …

Bill McKibben wrote a blockbuster book about climate change in 1989. Then he realized that he could no longer "argue" about climate change. He needed to take action. Great stories--> 
Bill McKibben started out as a journalist. In 1989 he wrote The End of Nature, which was first book for a general audience about climate change. It was a blockbuster hit, so he wrote more books and articles about the environment, climate and humanity’s relationship with the natural world. At some point, Mckibben realized that …
