America Abroad is an award-winning documentary radio program distributed by Public Radio International (PRI) and broadcast on public radio stations nationwide. Each month, we take an in-depth look at one critical issue in international affairs and U.S. foreign policy.

Anchored by public radio host Madeleine Brand, this monthly program covers global issues ranging from the challenges in Iran and North Korea, to the European debt crisis and the roots of the Arab Spring.

The hour-long broadcast combines original reporting, expert analysis, and historical pieces that incorporate archival audio and eyewitness accounts. No other public radio program devotes the same amount of time, depth of coverage, and level of analysis to a single issue in international affairs.
