Inkstick is foreign policy for the rest of us.  It breaks down the news you want and need to know without droning on.  When it matters, it also dives deeper to show you the people behind the policy and the stories they have to tell.  Inkstick isn’t afraid to laugh, cry, or suggest an alternative to that Aleppo pepper in your favorite dish – and when we do grab that beer, we’ll be dying for you to ask us about our kids, or our favorite band, or just about anything that shows us you’re a living breathing person just like us.
