USIP Podcast Network

The USIP Podcast Network kicks off with two inaugural programs, On Peace and Events at USIP:

On Peace

SiriusXM's POTUS Ch.124 puts USIP experts on the hot seat weekly to tackle the latest international issues in 10 minute segments.  Recent topics include protests in Iran, U.S.-Pakistan relations and the North Korean nuclear program. On Peace serves as the perfect way to stay up-to-date on international conflict without giving up your lunch hour.

 

Events at USIP

The U.S. Institute of Peace has long distinguished itself as one of Washington, DC’s premiere convening organizations, hosting global leaders, policy-makers, and practitioners as they offer practical solutions for the world’s most dangerous conflict zones.  Events at USIP brings that convening power to your home, office or mobile device, with same-day audio from USIP events. 

 

These programs are available for the public to listen, download and subscribe to on iTunes, GooglePlay, Podbean, Stitcher and TuneIn. Additional programs will be added to the USIP Podcast network in the coming months
