We have arrived at The Looking Glass'  third and final installment of our diplomacy series, a complement to the current print journal, "Ex Amicitia Pax: Diplomacy in Action." This episode focuses on  how the expanse and power of corporations are tied to their international conduct a.k.a  corporate diplomacy.  In a world where public perception and company values have a growing impact on a corporation's  success, understanding geopolitics is essential. To learn more, we had the pleasure of speaking with Prashanth Rajan, director of APCO Worldwide, and SAIS M.A. students Ananya Kumar and Andrew Pince. 
After the rapid succession of January's political events, The Looking Glass podcast team and The SAIS Review editorial board found it imperative to discuss the state of our American union. The majority of our team are U.S. citizens and the attack on the Capitol, impeachment, and inauguration left us all with much to think about. We explore what these recent events mean for our specific fields of study. We debate the role of foreign policy in our domestic affairs and vice versa. We layout our hopes for the future. Listen in on our open discussion, and perhaps  it will transport you to those pre-COVID-19 chats you might have struck up in Nitze cafe or as you rushed over to BOB.
