The Pacific Council is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization dedicated to global engagement. Our episodes feature international affairs experts discussing issues that have a local-to-global connection, including the COVID-19 pandemic, trade, diplomacy, and more. We want to help people who live and work in their local communities understand how their movements, choices, and especially their local policies can have global impact. And likewise, to make international leaders and decision makers understand how global policies affect small communities every day. Our episodes include recordings of Pacific Council teleconferences as well as a limited, original podcast series by the Council's Director of Programs, Thomas Zimmerman, called "Local Planet," focused on the COVID-19 pandemic. In "Local Planet," Thomas interviews individuals about their pandemic experiences abroad, in their local communities, and gives tips for global pop culture to follow during this time.
