Welcome to ADST’s podcast collection. We have 4 podcast series: In Their Own Voices (previously Poor Richard’s Podcasts), Modern American Diplomacy, Partners in Diplomacy, and Cold War. Each of these series capture critical perspectives and issues within the field of diplomacy.
Produced by ADST interns, In Their Own Voices, previously known as “Poor Richard’s Podcasts”, brings to life different moments in diplomatic history.
This series interviews American diplomats, capturing the sacrifice, leadership, humor, heroism, wisdom, and lessons of modern American diplomacy. Through historical reflections and personal anecdotes, guests explain foreign policy and tradecraft, or what they were trying to accomplish and how. Episodes include conversations with America’s diplomatic legends, as well as rising leaders and foreign policy experts from diverse backgrounds. This series was launched with support from the Una Chapman Cox Foundation.
This podcast series explores the service, sacrifice, and adventure of life as a Foreign Service family member. With support from the Una Chapman Cox Foundation, the series presents oral histories of spouses and partners working in the U.S. foreign affairs community. This project is designed to raise awareness of the important contributions Foreign Service spouses and partners have made to U.S. diplomacy and our country.
Produced by ADST interns, this podcast explores U.S. involvement in the post-World War II period as the cold war comes to define international relations.
