On this week’s episode of “Conversations with Nicholas Kralev,” we take a look at some of the best moments of our first season — with appearances by Ambassador Thomas Pickering, Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, figure-skating champion Michelle Kwan, Harvard professor Joseph Nye, former Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte, and other guests.
We hear their views on several major issues: What is diplomacy in the 21st century, and why should ordinary people care about what diplomats do? What kind of Foreign Service does — and should — the United States have? How can the State Department better train its employees? Why has the number of political appointees in U.S. diplomacy increased so drastically in recent years?
