“Conversations with Nicholas Kralev” is a weekly program on diplomacy and global affairs. It looks behind the scenes at the people and institutions that practice diplomacy and examines how effective they are — and how their work affects ordinary people’s lives. Guests include senior U.S. and foreign government officials, diplomats, foreign policy experts, journalists, business leaders and artists.
