The Indo-Pacific region is the most dynamic and consequential part of the world – and will only grow in importance as the 21st Century progresses. By every measure, the individuals, institutions, ideas, and economies of the Indo-Pacific are changing our world. Dr. Kurt M Campbell and Ambassador Richard Verma, two of the people best-suited to make sense of it all, sit down together in this inaugural episode of The Tea Leaves Podcast and have a conversation about their careers, beliefs, and views on Asia. They discuss how they came to focus on the Indo-Pacific, their accomplishments and challenges during their time in the U.S. government, and what brought them together to start this podcast.
