The Global Dashboard Podcast

Aside from the fact that we like to discuss global topics, we decided to start our podcast because the world is getting more difficult and more dangerous.  Our goal is to create a program that keeps people up to date and also deep dives into key topics in a way that helps people better understand the global challenges we face.  Along the way, we plan to have some fun and a few laughs and show people how interesting the world around us is.  We hope you’ll join us.  As a first step, you might want to check out our podcast trailer.  We have both audio and video versions below.  We have weekly episodes and produce them in both audio and video versions.
