Biden’s World
Play • 48 min

Zack, Jenn, and Alex host the first Worldly episode of the Biden administration, the show’s first-ever episode when Donald Trump is not president. They discuss how US foreign policy will differ under Biden — and surprising ways it might stay the same — on topics ranging from China to Middle Eastern alliances to climate change.


Alex has a thorough explainer on Biden’s foreign policy.

Zack wrote that it’s okay to feel hope after Biden’s inauguration.

Here’s Biden putting the US back in the Paris climate agreement.

And here’s Biden having the US rejoin the World Health Organization.

Vox wrote up how the confirmation hearings for Biden’s key national security Cabinet picks went this week.
