About

Underreported issues that matter

Matters of State is a lively international affairs analysis podcast written, hosted, and produced by a group of young professionals in Washington, DC. With each episode, the Matters of State team mixes together their fresh perspectives on the underreported aspects of what’s going on in the world. 

We aim to spark discussion on issues that the front pages are ignoring. 

While drawing on our diverse sets of personal, academic, and professional experiences to understand the trends discussed on the show, we all try to learn as much new information about each topic as possible. Join us as we have in-depth conversations about the issues that matter and learn from each other.
