Undercurrents is a regular podcast series featuring interviews with Chatham House experts - and others - about the critical underlying issues which are shaping modern society. Hosted by staff from across the institute, each episode goes in-depth on a topic, looking beyond the news to explore the issues shaping global politics.

Chatham House is an independent policy institute based in London. Our mission is to help build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world.

The Undercurrents team are back for a bonus episode!

If you are looking for a fiendishly difficult politically-minded quiz of the year to test out your relatives on Christmas Day then give this a listen. 

Beside much more you will find out:

  • How Rodrigo Duterte offended the faith of millions in the Philippines;
  • How Donald Trump sacked his Secretary of State;
  • Which team England beat in the first match of the 2018 Football World Cup. 

Happy holidays and happy listening!


Undercurrents is presented by Ben Horton and Agnes Frimston, with technical support from Robin Gardner. It is edited and produced at Chatham House.
